A believer in Christ was
sitting next to an elderly man on the bus. He struck up a conversation with the older gentleman and eventually asked him if he was a Christian. “No!” the man replied. “I have had a negative experience with Christians. They treated me badly.” Perplexed the Christian asked, “But sir, has Jesus Christ treated you badly?” “Certainly not,” the old man replied. Then he realized that he had no quarrel with God; it was men who had let him down.
Although people may have wronged us, God has not. Think about it. People lie, cheat, kill, betray. What has God done? He has loved us with an unfailing love. Romans 5:8 sums it up: “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Although people may have wronged us, God has not. Think about it… He has loved us with an unfailing love.
