The #verseoftheday is Colossians 4:5
“Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.”
IF we are going to make a difference in the world, then we need to learn to see people the way Jesus sees people, and we need to treat them the way Jesus treated them.
We need a paradigm shift. A change of perspective. We need to see through a different lens.
How did Jesus see you when you were an outsider?
Jesus sees your struggle.
Jesus sees your doubts
Jesus sees your unbelief
Jesus sees your questions
Jesus sees how different you are from him…
And yet he is NOT afraid, & he still pursues you.
IF JESUS pursues outsiders for relationships, then we should pursue outsiders, too. When we live the Christian life with “outsiders” in mind, it impacts all of our decisions & influences how we treat others.
