What In Fact Would Jesus Do?

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

When struggling recently with some issues in my life, my sister pointed out to me that we can not classify sin as this one is worse than that one and then go get in the face of the sinner or person who is hurting us. It is the classic asking yourself "WWJD or what would Jesus do". Would Jesus unfriend people on Facebook? Would Jesus be angry at LGBT rallies and  marches? Would Jesus boycott Target? Would Jesus not vote because he did not like who was running?Add your own scenarios to the list. 

Acting ugly or beating someone over the head with the Bible never won anyone to Jesus that I know of. We all have had struggles in life. No one can say their life is perfect. Sure we all are going to face death one day and we may have friends or family caught up in stuff and our hearts ache but never the less, we are called to pray, not judge and condemn. 

My friend,Jesus is Lord indeed even in these times when the world seems to be going crazy. We have to continue to act like Christians and show love, kindness, and grace. Don't point fingers at others as the other fingers are pointing back at you. Just keep praying. 

PRAYER:Lord there are times and situations I just don't know how to respond to. Sometimes things hurt me and maybe at times I have hurt others. Forgive me if so. Show me how to respond to the sin that so easily entangles the world. In Jesus' name. Amen.
