Jesus always made it a point to be with people who believed and behaved differently than Him. Those far from God always seemed to be the ones who were most comfortable around Him. In churches today, we often find the opposite to be true. But this should not be the case. If we want to reach people, we have to be welcoming to them. We have to not just talk about them but talk to them. Who are you most often around? Who are you making feel welcomed and loved? Who is your One that you are praying for and influencing toward faith? These are things that we as Jesus followers must keep in the forefront of our minds if we truly want to be the Church.
