A Life of Faith

There is so much misinformation about Jesus today.  Sadly a lot of it comes from news and social media.  Both avenues of spreading ‘news’ most often shows the extremes, the negative, those seeking publicity around an event for their own gain and so the average person who does not have a life of faith or knows little about Jesus, is very jaded by all aspects of social and news media. 

How do we counter that?  It is difficult, but necessary.  From the time of Jesus, it has always been an uphill battle.  Societies will do all they can to try and contain the work of Jesus and the work that churches and people of faith do in the name of Jesus.

The best way to counter all the negative talk and hype about Jesus, religion and the church is to do just the opposite.  Be positive about Jesus.  Share with others what Jesus does for you each day.  Explain to those who do not know Jesus, what he did while he was on earth, what he stood for while he was on earth and how the church today does the best it can to emulate Jesus in its work and mission.

What Jesus stands for goes against the cultural norm.  He stands for love, compassion, forgiveness, grace, peace, mercy, helping the helpless and marginalized.  That is just the beginning.  The more one learns about Jesus, the more appealing he is to follow.  That is the beginning of a life of faith, following Jesus and becoming like him in our lives.
