We Don’t Need More Christians…

I read this blog by Matt Chambers a few days ago and was challenged.  I wanted to pass it on to you as well.

We don’t need more Christians…
We don’t need more Christians who are trying to be radical.
We don’t need more Christians who are trying to stand out.
We don’t need more Christians who are trying to be celebrities.
We don’t need more Christians who treat other Christians like celebrities.
We don’t need more Christians who don’t listen.
We don’t need more Christians who look down on others.
We don’t need more Christians who think they’ve arrived.
We don’t need more Christians who fight about things that don’t matter.
We don’t need more Christians who exclude.
We don’t need more Christians who intrude.
We don’t need more Christians who make promises they can’t keep.
We don’t need more Christians who turn a blind eye.
We don’t need more Christians who are better at politics than community.
We don’t need more Christians who pretend.


We need more Christians who look like Jesus.


“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.  I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.  Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.  Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.  And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.  May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.  Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.


“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” — Ephesians 3:14-21


The days are short.  The fight is hard.  The journey is worth our lives.


The post today was a reminder for me.  I hope it is for you as well.
