Are You Better?

When you see people who are not Christians, what do you think? Maybe you feel sorry for them because they do not know Jesus. Maybe you feel angry or sad because they have rejected Jesus. Or perhaps you feel like you are a better person than they are.

The devil wants us to believe that we are saved because we are good. He wants us to think we are better than other people. But it is wrong to think that. The truth is, we are not better than people who are not saved. Before we became Christians, we acted like them. But someone led us to Jesus. Then we let Him change our lives.

Does God love us because we are good? No! God loves us because HE is good! In Titus 3:7 Paul wrote about this. “We were made right with God by his grace. God saved us so that we could be his children and look forward to receiving life that never ends.”

When you see people who are not Christians, you may be tempted to think that you are better than they are. Don’t allow yourself to believe this. Instead, understand that you are saved because of God’s grace. Those people can be saved, too, if someone will tell them the Good News about Jesus. Will you share Jesus with them?
