As Radical as Jesus
Okay so one of the most radical person I have know is Jesus.
As Christians we should seek to be as radical as he was. Jesus was not a “waggonist”, he did not follow the status quo. He hated any form of hypocrisy and he loved all humanity.
That is what we should strive for.
Today too many Christians are contented to move with the crowd, even if it means we do not look like Jesus. Jesus never cared what the masses thought because he was always about his master’s business.
We should seek to be as compassionate as Jesus was. He was always moved by compassion even for the vilest of sinner. Remembering at all times that being compassionate does not mean that we are in agreement with the way the person is living their lives. Persons are more apt to listen to us and change their ways when we approach them with the kind of compassion that Jesus displayed.
We should seek to be less judgmental. The bible tells us that we are inexcusable to judge…I don’t know about you, but that word “inexcusable” is a very serious word; and if we really stopped to think about it, we would run as far as we can from judgmental practices.
Let us be radical in how we serve; how we respond to the people around us. Jesus did not move with the masses and he was never afraid to be different. When the crowd came against the woman who was caught in adultery, he shocked them by making that famous statement. So it is for us today, we can only cast the first stone if we have no sin. Since not one of us is without sin then we should be more careful how we respond to our brothers and sisters. Just because the crowd is saying it does not mean we have to follow it. If Jesus would not go with that decision then we should not either.
