How do some people feel on the outskirts of church?
One reason people say they can’t come to church is that they would feel such a fraud. This is a strong word and has a moral element to it. Fraud is a deception deliberately practiced in order to secure unfair or unlawful gain or One who assumes a false pose; an impostor. I wonder if Zacchaeus felt like a fraud as a hated tax collector he wanted to view Jesus, but from a distance. What did Jesus do for someone who may have felt that he didn’t deserve to be close to Jesus? Jesus of course invited him. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
