Why can we feel, physically, when words are spoken? Why do some hurt, while others are soothing? Why do some leave you breathless and numb? The power of words is grossly underestimated when spoken from within, without premeditation; or, maybe, with too much thought. Nonetheless, we all know that words are powerful and, when spoken […]

I cringe….The Word

*This was a post I wrote back on February 17, 2017 when the blog was new. I pray you enjoy it. :)

When Christians, say things like, “You should do this: insert judgement, chastising, sermon here ” or “God wants you to be this or that to be saved”….CRINGE. (exceptions: see footnote 1)

Really did God call you this morning and tell you that? lol :)

You might want to call Him back and ask Him how He feels about your judgement of His child.

While you’ve got Him on the line, ask Him how He feels about the stumbling block you just threw in front of His child, causing His child to feel unworthy or like they are a lost cause. Leaving them with the attitude of why bother. There’s no hope for me, why try. Instead of reassuring them of His unmeasurable love for them, and how nothing can separate them from that love.

Also ask Him how He feels about the splinter you’re plucking out of their eye, instead of worrying about the plank in your own eye.

Now obviously I am being a little sarcastic (maybe) but I literally cringe when I hear Christians who, I know with all my heart, think they are saving a soul, try to help God like this.

God doesn’t need our help. He created everything, pretty sure He can manage.

His Word says He wants us to love others so much that, like fiery embers falling on their heads, they will want that love also. That’s how we can help.

Through His word, He will convict them of what to do and not do. He promised He put His Word in our heads and hearts.

So, they already know what they should or shouldn’t do, they are already struggling.

We just have to love them, so much that they will want His love too.

God, His word and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.

My non-Christian friends, when greeted in this way by my Christian friends, usually respond with, if that’s your God, I don’t want anything to do with it….cringe

Instead of the love God wanted them to feel from that Christian, they felt the exact opposite.

As good as that Christian’s intentions were, what’s the saying, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

God Bless you :)
