Red Letter Challenge
After all that Jesus has done for us, we can’t help but want to be the best disciples we can possibly be. But how do we know if we are truly following Him well, or representing Him well? This world needs to see the true picture of who Jesus is and you have what it takes!
Let me give you a quick example. One of the first words I think of when I think of Jesus is grace. And yet when you ask people, especially non-Christians what they think of Christ-followers, one of the first words that comes out of their mouth is judgment. Think about that. Grace is getting a free gift you do not deserve. That’s how Jesus is known. That’s how he calls us to be known. Judgment is getting exactly what you do deserve. In other words, the opposite of grace. So Jesus is known for grace. We are known for judgment. Man, we are missing the mark. How in the world can Christ followers be content with representing Jesus in such a poor fashion?
"So Jesus is known for grace. We are known for judgment."
It's time we go back to Christ’s words and learn from Him what it means to be his followers. We have to change the picture that we represent and the story that we tell of who Jesus is. And that’s what the Red Letter Challenge is all about. I hope you will join us!
