Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
~ Hebrews 10:25, KJV ~
There are many stories of newcomers struggling in their faith. Many who have taken up the courage to step into Church and to seek God. They bring with them fears, doubts, insecurities, challenges, trauma, and health related issues. They are broken and feel isolated and alone. They end up walking out of the Church forsaken, alone, and judged by self-righteous Christians who feel uncomfortable to having the homeless, the alcoholic, the addict, the individual who is broken and marginalized. Self-righteous Christians despise the sinners that desire to come unto Christ.
The Gospel is not a mandate to seek out those who are healthy and well. We are called to go out into the Highways and Bi-ways. To seek out those who are less fortunate. To minister to those who are broken. To sit with those who are living in sin. We are to reach those who are sick and lost.
Many times, good meaning Christians fail the great commission of Jesus Christ because they fail to understand the true love Our Heavenly Father has for all his Children. Good meaning Christians fail to minister to those whom God places in our paths. They inevitably forsake others from coming into fellowship of Jesus Christ. Good meaning Christians fail to love thy neighbor.
