To many in Christianity and the Church Jesus would not be saved.
The One we call our Savior wasn’t accepted by the religious people of his day
He wasn’t good enough, spiritual enough; basically Jesus to them was unsaved
His friends were tax collectors, prostitutes and fishermen
He worked on the Sabbath, he dined with sinners, He broke their traditions time and time again
He showed compassion to the sinners, whom He loved and did not condemn
But to those standing there, If you are without sin, you throw the first stone, is how he challenged them
By their standards Jesus was unsaved, he didn’t look like them, didn’t dress like them, He didn’t abide by their rules
He said he was here for the sinners, for those who are sick, and for that, they thought he was a fool
The churches now are like the religious people of Jesus day, they create their own rules
They preach them, they love them, they condemn you if you don’t abide by them, they hold on to them like precious jewels
If Jesus was to come to earth today and do what He did in the past, the church would not give Him praise
They would look down on him, they would criticize Him, they would say He isn’t saved
Because He would hangout with sinners and those shunned by the church
He would accept the unacceptable and love them, unlike those up on their religious perch
They wouldn’t approve the places he would hang out, and the things He would do through the day
To the church we have now, Jesus would be unsaved.
I’m not saying that all churches and all Christians are this way,
But I want to challenge every Christian to be like the Jesus who wasn’t saved
Pour out His love to all, no matter who they are, or where they’ve been
Because the Unsaved Jesus would love them regardless of their sin.
