Be the message

I get so tiered of encountering mean Christians. Look, we can't continue to be a bunch of babies, that go to church 3 or more times a week and have no idea how to represent God out in public or towards others. The fruits of the spirit are Love, joy, peace, patients, kindness , goodness, faithfulness, self control. If you are a Christian, then all those should be real attributes of your daily self. All the fruits come out of love and if you learn how to walk in love, think more about what you can do for others instead of yourself, you'll have so much joy, you won't know what to do with it.  John 13:34 , A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

I remember reading a quote from an early Latin writer named Tertullian of Carthage,I know very little about Tertullian , which is why I included a link to wikipedia but I do remember him being quoted as saying, "That the one thing that converted him to Christianity was not the arguments they gave him, because he could find a counterpoint for every argument they would present but rather it was what they demonstrated something I didn't have. The thing that converted me to Christianity was the way that they loved each other,"  Now that saying so much and I often think, If he encountered some of the people i know would he feel the same or would he walk away with his counterpoints?

Folks, please don't just give preach the message be the message.

I love you and have a very blessed and wonderful day.

Anna Marie.
