This is Why You’re a Christian

Luke 16:19-31

Being a Christian is hard. Rich people run for political office. Pampered athletes complain about their working conditions. Self-important celebrities get all the attention. All this while we slave away day after day. In a world of religious toleration, it seems the only faith that can’t be tolerated is the Christian faith.
Since it is hard being a Christian, it’s good for us, from time to time, to get an encouraging reminder of why we’re Christians. This weekend, Jesus’ story of the Rich Man and Poor Lazarus does just that.
