Ever heard the statement, “you don’t have a heaven or hell to put me in”? Well, some people believe they do own the keys to the Kingdom of God. More precisely, some people think you can only find God one way. We all should know that we do not find God the same way but there is only one way to reach him… that’s through Jesus Christ.
Take for instance, Paul. Paul was a Christian murderer and was known for his countless assaults on Christians. Yes, he was a Christian assassin. So imagine how he felt when he was temporarily blinded and transformed. He testified of his experiences but some people still didn’t trust his new-found Christian lifestyle.
Am I comparing Kanye’s transformation to the great Apostle Paul? Well no, but I am saying that you and I do not have the master key to heaven. Just maybe, he had an epiphany. Maybe he had an experience that called him to Christ. Nonetheless, he may be impacting people who wouldn’t know about Christ otherwise. I remember when I first listened to “Jesus Walk with Me”. I thought, it is something more to this song. This dude might really know something and hiding it in his music. All of us have experiences that led us to Christ, so who are we to think that Kanye is any different?
All of us have a past and someone knew us when we weren’t saved. 🤔 If they discredited your relationship with God, how would you feel?
Of course, we are to hold each other accountable in our faith but we are not to judge. Pray for him and each other as we operate as ambassadors on earth because that is what the great commission is all about.
