A famous Shiite Muslim leader was in town last week.
I was and still am unfamiliar with him...or his sect of Islam.
I don't even know his name.
I don't know how he treats people.
I don't know what he thinks about Allah or Jesus.
All I do know about him is that his followers were organized and there were alot of them.
The very little I do know about him, I learned by watching his followers....
This reminded me of a concept taught to me in Israel by Ray VanderLaan- He was always reminded us that most of the people watching us learned about Jesus from exactly that...
What we wore-
How we spoke-
How we treated each other and their land-
If others do not know Him...There is a good chance that all they are going to know is from us.
Now we could be in some trouble here....as Christians, we are walking billboards for God.
So what are are we saying?
What are they seeing?
Let them see Love.
For God and for each other.
Grace and Peace,
