What is it that keeps people without religious affiliation — one of the fastest-growing segments of the population — from understanding and accepting the Christian faith?
Some people don’t want to be bothered with religion but I think the vast majority of people simply aren’t satisfied with the options they see. I think this post puts it well.
Those of us who identify ourselves as Christians need to remember all we say and do is being watched and measured by the rest of society. We need to know Jesus well and be sure we are representing Him accurately and compassionately. Scripture calls us “ambassadors”, and ambassadors don’t have the luxury of speaking and acting on their own behalf; an ambassador’s job is to speak on behalf of the nation that sent him. We are called to represent God’s kingdom to the world — which is an incredible joy but also an awesome responsibility. Nothing less than our prayerful best will do.
