Get Me Out Of This!

1 0

We tend to attract and befriend those who are most like us. Whether it be a shared music preference, age, ethnicity, belief system…it’s easy to find friends who are like you.

I was just sitting here thinking, reflecting, taking inventory (as always! Lol) and I realized that for the 1st time in my life I’m literally ALWAYS around Christians! I work at a Christian job, go to my Christian church, and hang out with my Christian friends.

And as much as I LOVEEEE my job, the church, my friends (and would never wanna trade them…EVER), I’m starting to feel a tad isolated in my comfortable bubble of always being understood & supported.

I want to be a bridge. Represent the love of God to those who don’t believe in Him or feel too far to come back home to Him. Even the rebellious and hard-hearted who hate the very person I’ve committed to living my entire life for.

I’m praying God brings me into authentic relationships with people who don’t quite see life the way I view it. And I pray other Christians will join me with pure heart in asking for the same. Not so we can say “I have close, unsaved friends” and feel good about ourselves, but because we really, truly want to be a practical demonstration of the gospel in the lives of those who call it fake, imaginary or foolish.

I’ll end with this quote I just heard the other day. “There are 5 gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the Christian. Many people will never read the first four.”
