I Needed To Be Reminded Of These Truths Today!
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. – 1 Corinthians 13:1
Ghandi once said of Christianity, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” What a heartbreaking reminder of what religion can be if we leave out the most important part: Christ. What difference does Christ make? He shows us how to love in the face of hate and fear. He is the ultimate example of balancing truth and grace. Truth alone gives us legalism – a list of do’s and don’ts. Grace alone creates an atmosphere where anything goes, and all roads lead to heaven. One without the other erodes the very nature of love, and the nature of Christ.
