“Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, ‘How can I help?'” Romans 15:1-2
Our world is hurting. Things have spun out of control and people are freaking out. Many people who many of us might’ve thought were Christians have either turned from the faith or adopted beliefs that don’t gel with Scripture. What should we do? How should we handle all this unrest and all these friends seriously doubting their faith?
Unfortunately many well-meaning Christians have resorted to pointing fingers and making a spectacle of someone’s sin. Some have even stooped to name calling. “You’re doing it wrong!” That does not seem like the right reponse to a someone who is struggling or straying.
We’ve got to love each other, and not with a hippy, groovy kind of love, but with the love that comes from the Source of love that now dwells in us. If you know someone who is struggling, listen to him. Hear what he is really saying and ask good questions. Remember it’s not up to you to convict, but to lead him back to the feet of Jesus.
Do you know someone who is struggling in his faith? Pray for him and then reach out to him. Maybe you are the one who is having doubts. Reach out to someone you know who is solid in his faith. If you don’t know anyone, message me, I’d be happy to pray for you and help you navigate through your trouble if I can.
