When people look at you, what do they see? Do they see Jesus?
Let’s be honest. In many places today the church is not particularly well liked—it’s viewed as judgmental, mean, ignorant, and intolerant. If we want to have any influence on the world or even the people next door, we need to give some serious consideration to why that is.
How have Christians, a people who are called by God to be the most loving, caring, understanding, and joyous people in the world, come to be viewed as the exact opposite? How can we change that? Craveable is an all-out call for Christianity to return to the allure that caused the church to win the world in the first century. It is time to start:
• Listening as Jesus listened
• Loving as He loved
• Leading as He led
In other words, if God’s church and His people were to act like Jesus, loving the unlovable, accepting all the unacceptable, and demonstrating a life of faith and joy, we would be successful in turning our perception from being unlikeable to actually being CRAVEABLE!
