Imagine you’re working in a different office for a couple of weeks where no one knows you. You interact day after day, making friends as you go. At the end of your time with them, you pass out your card that says you’re a part of a ministry.
Do they think, “I knew something was different about her,” or do they say, “You mean she goes to church?”
Love Heart, it’s just my opinion, but I think the disobedient Christian does more harm to the unbeliever than another unbeliever. They have to be able to see something different in you other than the fact that you call yourself a Christian. I can call myself asparagus but that doesn’t make it so!
Paul says in Ephesians 4:1, “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”
I wish I could tell you that all the days I have lived since I was 9 years old were worthy of the calling of Christ. The truth is that most of my days probably have not been lived in a worthy manner. But that doesn’t mean I give up. It means I keep putting one foot in front of the other and asking God to live through me!
If you are uncomfortable by what you’ve read, maybe you should reconsider the way you live. Maybe you need to live for Him instead of yourself. Make a change,Love Heart, and go with God. Gwen~
