Good afternoon everyone! What Happens When Christians Fail To Make Jesus Look Good? “Do you know one of the top reasons people don’t want to follow Christ?” My mentor put down her coffee mug and extended her pointer finger in my direction. She then answered her own question, “Christians!” she exclaimed. “We are all hungry beggars inviting other hungry beggars to accompany us to the dump,” she concluded. “Don’t forget that.” Christians fail to make Jesus look good If people only looked to Christians in order to discover who Jesus is, no one would want to choose Him! When we look at both the world and the church, both inside and out, it can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference. When Christians fail to make Jesus look good, it’s no wonder many turn away from following Jesus. Christians are to be the true Church. Christians are described in the most intimate of terms as a Bride of Christ (Revelation 19:7). Christ-followers don’t reluctantly trudge behind Jesus. They are to live, learn, and long to become like Him as we seek His kingdom come. Despite knowing what the ideal standard is for Christians, we still are guilty of constantly misrepresenting Jesus. Sinful and broken, every careless person can be the culprit to leading others away from Jesus. Own the wrong and the responsibility We won’t ever perfectly represent Jesus. We’re as desperate for God’s help in our righteousness, as we are in our salvation. But we can live authentically by the power of the Holy Spirit. We can unashamedly confess our sin, and we can respond with humility when we do wrong or are wronged by others. Time after time Gods word tells us to watch our tongue, to count others above ourselves, and to love sacrificially. God uses His people to redeem the views of those who’ve been hurt, judged, and disregarded by those in the Church. So how do we address those who have suffered in the Church? Remember the importance of grace Jesus came to Earth, in order to die to take the punishment we deserve and present us Holy to God. However we are still a broken humanity. It’s through our mistakes, such as unbridled tongues and deep-seated pride that can bring proof that we all need Jesus to take away our sins. Explain that we don’t have to have our act together before receiving salvation. It is by grace we are saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). God’s grace is an extravagant gift that spurs Christians to want to live a life worthy of this gift. After all our works do not earn our faith, they validate it (James 2:17). Ask Challenge your friends to investigate Christ, not Christians. Christians are a family, a group of needy people on their way to meet their Savior. Our sisters and brothers in Christ will hurt many of us; just like we are hurt daily by those we love. Apologize and recognize the hurt by declaring how sorry you are for what they have experienced. Clarify that his or her hurt came from someone who was acting in a manner that is not true to Jesus himself. We must constantly keep in mind that Christians are not perfectly righteous (Romans 3:10). Depending on the situation and the wrong done to them, perhaps a helpful conversation with God’s love speaking through you should considered. And follow through!

If You’ve Ever Felt Betrayed: Jesus Understands “While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, "Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me--one who is eating with me." Mark 14:18 Betrayal. Chances are, if we’ve lived long enough, we know very well what this feels like. To be betrayed or wronged by one who was trusted is a difficult hurdle to get over. It can sometimes leave us stuck right where it happened, we spin it over in our minds a million different ways, asking all the why's, but there's usually no adequate answer to even satisfy. He knows. He understands. Judas Iscariot, one who walked with Jesus and knew him well, paid simple money to betray our Savior. 30 pieces of silver, given in exchange for His life. It seems almost incredible that he would fall for such a trap or be so wrapped in greed. Money can't be placed on any life. But on the very One who did so much for him, who offered such love and forgiveness? The ultimate betrayal of a friend. Yet Jesus knew it was part of a larger plan. And He still chose to say “yes” and walk that difficult road. Because He understood at the very core of it all, was our need to be set free. Our need for forgiveness. The crowd, who had just days before been praising His name as He rode into Jerusalem, suddenly changed. The tide had turned, things had shifted in the other direction. Jesus, once loved and followed by the multitudes, became the person the crowds turned hatred and insults upon. His own disciples scattered, out of fear for their own lives. They ran. Away from him. In the darkest hours. Peter, one of his bravest, closest friends, even denied knowing him, 3 different times. The deep hurt Jesus must have endured, the pain, the loneliness, is hard to imagine. So often in this life when we are wronged, betrayed, offended, or treated unfairly, we want to rise up. To defend our rights and on our own point of view. Or we fight hard to get even. Or even stew in silence while nursing our wounds and getting more angry. It’s hard to extend the same grace and compassion that Christ Himself extended to others in the midst of his own pain. Yet He set the example, the way for us to walk. He knew the trap of betrayal and unforgiveness, he saw through its lies, the deep wounds of the soul that it could cause. He chose the better way, stepped over its grasp, and chose to love, to forgive. Unforgiveness, even towards ourselves, will keep us prisoner to the past, to the wrong, to the betrayal, to the offender. It will never allow us to move forward in the freedom of where God wants us to live. And even hidden resentments, the ones we think no one sees, or knows about, safely tucked away into a secret place in our souls, will weigh us down, trapping us in the very place we wish to let go of. But we don't have to live there. We can make the choice to move forward. Though forgiveness may never "feel" right, it will always "be" right. Because in it you will be set free. Choosing to forgive doesn't mean that the wrong never happened, it just means you refuse to allow it to control your life anymore. Christ forgave. Huge love covering all the wrong, all the sin, all the barriers that block our way to God. He whispered these words up to His Father, grace words, breathing out love, through the suffering and the pain. He spoke them out loud. For those that persecuted Him. For us. For the world. “Father, forgive them…” And He forgives. Still. Grace. Amazing love. That covers a multitude of sin. Let go. Give it to Him. He carried all the hurt for you. He understands your pain. In Him, we are set free. By Debbie McDaniel
