From Pete Wilson – “Jesus chose to see people for who they could be rather than who they are in that moment.”

That statement just knocked the breath right out of me.   Have I been committed to Jesus for so long that I forget what it’s like to be out there — without Him?   Or have I forgotten my early Christian days when I made judgements and statements out of ignorance and arrogance? 

I still make judgements out of ignorance and arrogance.  I see myself as this open and accepting follower of Christ.  I believe in GRACE — fully and wholy.  For by grace you have been saved through faith.  And this is not your own doing; it is a gift from God Eph 2:8

It’s in this grace that I want to accept people.   I want to see people who they could be!  I would rather see me for who I could be if I’d stop procrastinating and put down the fried chicken. 

This world is filled with bad stuff — but I want to believe in the good of my fellow man.  I know that we are ALL God’s children and it is His desire that ALL come to know Him as Lord and Savior. 

Thanks for making me think Pete.
