Living in fellowship with other imperfect, annoying Christians, I have found, is one of God's primary ways of honing us into the image of Jesus. We need to learn to accept, forgive, love the unlovely. We need to realize that we also are unlovely, and are in need of acceptance and forgiveness. If you don't love Jesus, Christians will scare you away every time. If you love Jesus, you'll love His people, and you'll hang in there with both Him and them.

People have many different reasons for rejecting the gospel. A common one is to blame Christians for something they did or did not do. These critics say, "I know a Christian who treated me poorly." Or, "I went to church, and no one talked to me."

Indeed, Christians aren’t perfect, and many can be bad examples. But blaming others doesn’t remove one’s accountability to God.

The truth of the gospel does not depend on the way others live out their faith. Salvation is about Jesus alone. Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

Some people may use Christians as an excuse to reject the gospel. But they certainly can’t point a finger of blame at Jesus. He is sinless and perfect in every way. Pilate said of Him, "I have found no fault in this Man" (Luke 23:14). And Jesus did what no one else could do—He suffered death on a cross to provide salvation for all who believe in Him. That makes it tough for someone to say, "I’m not going to become a Christian because I don’t like what Jesus did."

Don’t get sidetracked by looking at the faults of others. Look to Jesus. He alone is the way to heaven. —Dave Branon

There is no excuse for saying "No" to Christ.
