“What then? If some were unfaithful, will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness? Absolutely not! Let God be true, even though everyone is a liar…” (Romans 3:3-4)
Have you ever had someone use the excuse on you that they won’t become a Christian because they knew a Christian who was a hypocrite and it turned them off to Christianity? God forbid that we who claim to follow Christ would turn people away from Him by our actions, and I believe we will be held accountable for it if we do—but the fact remains that Christians are human, and they do sin and fail sometimes. So, keep this verse in your back pocket for the next time that excuse comes up.
Truth: the unfaithfulness of one of His followers does not disprove His faithfulness!

About the photo: Anyone else love the song of the red-winged blackbirds as much as I do? It’s one of my top-favorite things to look forward to each spring!
