MANY CHRISTIANS ARE SO UNLIKE CHRIST

Bible Text: "Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it." (1 Corinthians 15:1)

If one has to submit, it is wasteful not to do so with the best grace possible. Most great men you read about or know, started out ugly and awkward and then adjust into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone now loves.

As a child of God who love what God has done to human kind, giving us His son Jesus (John 3:16) we should preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.

Don’t just believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don't like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.

One thing I’m sure of is that the entire world would be Christian if they were taught the pure Gospel of Christ! Could this be the reason Mahatma Gandhi said “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

In verses three and four (1 Corinthians 15:3,4), Paul describes the content of the gospel.  Here, he describes how the gospel can be of benefit to man.  The gospel is only of benefit if it is received and if one will stand in it.

If the Corinthian Christians did not continue to hold fast, one day they might let go of the gospel. And if one lets go of the gospel, all their previous belief won’t do them any good.  It was as if they had believed in vain.

We should always remember that Jesus did not die for a political cause, or as an enemy of the state, or for someone's envy. Jesus died for our sins. Jesus did not die as a mere martyr for a cause.
