Not Going to Lie ( by Carley Evans )

Paul says, “I am not ashamed of the gospel.” I agree. I am not ashamed of the good news of Jesus Christ crucified for sinners.

And, I am not going to lie — I know a lot of sinners. First and foremost, I know myself. I also know heterosexuals who engage in sexual activity outside the boundaries of marriage; I know homosexuals who do the same. I know people who drink alcohol to excess; I know people who drink in moderation; I know people who refrain from drink completely — they are all sinners. I know people who love violent movies, filled with action. I know people who never go to the movies — actually I haven’t met many people who never go to the movies. I know people who read all sorts of books and magazines; I know people who burn all sorts of books and magazines; I know people who don’t read at all  — they are all sinners.

Guess what? I love them all. Know why? Because Jesus died for me, the worst of the sinners I know. If He loves me, then I love those whom He loves.
