Facilitators and Self-Vindicators

The true followers of Jesus Christ are facilitators, disciple makers. They are concerned about others, they want to bring others into fellowship with Jesus Christ,. To them it is important that others would learn to hear His voice, then to follow Him, that others would get to know Jesus Christ for real, and therefore they do their utmost to bring others into that close relationship with Jesus. They share their experience, their testimony,and they do their utmost to help others to learn to follow Jesus Christ.

Religious people are self-vindicators. To them it is important that their voice be heard, that their opinion be understood. To them it is important to justify themselves and to justify their faith in their own salvation. They are concerned about themselves. They are not concerned about other people, other believers. They are not concerned about souls that are being lost. You can often see it when you read the comments of people that comment on video blogs. The true followers of Jesus Christ are concerned about bringing the other people into that relationship with Jesus whereas the religious people try to vindicate themselves. They try to show off their Bible knowledge or express their own opinion. They are arrogant and self-centered.

A tree is known by its fruit. We should be concerned about the kingdom of God. We should be concerned about people who are being lost every day. We should be concerned about those who do not know the way, who do not know Jesus Christ. We should be concerned about the approval of Jesus Christ, not about our own status or our own recognition. We should not vindicate ourselves. Jesus Christ vindicates each and every true disciple. We do not need to defend ourselves. We do not need to impress other people. All we need to do is to bring others to Jesus, because we care, because we care for their souls, because we care for the kingdom of God, and because the love of Christ has been poured out in our hearts and we want to see the kingdom of our Lord and Master grow.

Our concern is bringing others to Jesus while we ourselves follow Jesus Christ and seek to please Him every day.

May Jesus bless you.
