Gentle

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:1-2

Softly, gently Christ has called us to Him. He did not force Himself on us to make us believe in Him. Christ is gentle and allows us to come to Him as we are. No matter what our pasts looked like, Christ accepted us as we were. None of us had to get cleaned up, put on a mask, and pretend to be holy. Christ loved us as we were, with all our brokenness.

We often hear people say they have to get their lives in order before they can come to Christ. Christ knows that if we were capable of getting our lives in order, He would be waiting a very long time for people to come to Him. We all struggle to do the right things. We are all broken and in need of a Savior. Christ always meets us right where we are. Christ is always gentle and kind.

In the same way, we need to be gentle and kind to the newcomers entering the doors of recovery. We remember what it was like to walk through those doors for the first time. We remember how hard it was to push on what seemed to be the heaviest door ever, walk towards the church, open the door, and walk into the vast unknown of recovery. What would happen if we treated each newcomer as if they were angels sent by God? We would find that there wouldn’t be enough room to fit everyone coming to our recovery meetings. We have to be gentle with each other as if we are entertaining angels.
