People can be pretty rough on each other. It just takes a quick glance at the comments section of anything shared online to understand that’s a serious reality. Unfortunately, Christians get labeled as one of the main offenders on this subject but shouldn’t we be the opposite?
It feels like Jesus said “come as you are” and we came…all messed up and full of bad habits and issues but once we got to Jesus, we posted up a bouncer at the door to keep those other messy people (who looked just like us) on the outside. We cannot accept this amazing grace and then turn around and deny it from others.
I believe I’m here to love people. Yes, even the ones who drop f-bombs and have more issues than Marvel Comics…because ultimately thats exactly how I looked to Jesus and he accepted me. My only valid response can be to share that love that I freely received (and didn’t earn) with everyone I meet.

About Drew Wilson
Raised in East Texas, Drew is one of the few native Texans on the NGEN crew. He is proud of his upbringing, which would not have been complete without Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street and Ninja Turtles. Drew’s love for music started early on with him learning guitar and performing in many (garage) bands over the years. Later on, he spent years teaching guitar, leading worship and most recently playing lead guitar with the band Scientist. Drew received his degree in Communications from Stephen F. Austin and while recording an announcement at the local radio station he was asked to apply for a part time position. He quickly fell in love with radio and eventually received a full time job with the station. (he “fell in love with radio” how sweet…)
