Friend of Sinners

August 8, 2014

Last Friday, I wrote about Love. Today, I am still chasing that very same theme. Church can be a weird place. It can be one of the most judgmental places on earth where each person is measuring up everyone else to see if they are worthy of bring there. They remember others sins better than they remember their own. Then there are other churches where love is all they know to do. You can feel welcomed and cared for there. You can feel safe there.

For those who are angry at the church because all you have gotten from the church is pain and sorrow, don’t stop searching. This is not what the real church is supposed to be. Run from those churches and search for one which will be a safe shelter in this storm we call life. They are out there. There ARE churches who are counting on the Grace of God because they are more worried about caring for you than being correct all the time.

Here is a song that reminds me of how we are to be. Listen to Casting Crowns sing, “Jesus, Friend of Sinners.”
