Hebrews 10:25 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another even more as you see the day of the Lord coming nearer.
What is your life like on Monday-Saturday? Do you simply include your faith on Sundays only, or is it a part of your everyday life? Doing the impossible is the essence of our Christian faith. Are you acting out your faith responsibly? What are you doing when the spotlight is not shining on you?
Our faith is not to be on display for others to see only on the Sabbath day. It should be so engraved within every fabric of our being that others will never mistake us as anything less than a follower of Jesus Christ. I am not saying that I have lived a perfect and flawless life. But with ever intentional vein filled with His blood inside my body, my one primary goal is to live a life of no compromise and to shine the light of Christ into the darkest crevices around me. What I am saying is, that I am shining more of that light now, than ever before.
If David could take on the giant Goliath, and John could boldly proclaim the Good News in the desert, I also can do both when filled with His Presence in my life. I can report to combat, and I can point others to the cross effortlessly when His grace is allowed full reign within me. He expects no less, and it is the least that I can do for the ONE who delivered me from my torment, set my feet on solid ground, healed my iniquities, comforted my sorrows, loved me unconditionally and died that I might live forever!
It is easy for me to profess my love for Jesus when times are going well, but how about when things aren’t going as I expected? Ah…now this is where we begin to see our true character. Do we trust God when things seem to be hopeless or at a loss? Do we abandon our faith when other tangible means of provision dangle before us like a carrot before a hungry rabbit? Do we carelessly shove our faith aside during the weekdays for fear of persecution by peers and co-workers? After doing so, what have we left at the end of day that belongs to Christ?
In closing, when the spotlight is not shining on you, would others still see the same character and temperament that you portray on Sunday’s? As I travel this nation, I relentlessly must agree that the average person who calls themselves a Christian appears to have a dual personality. Is it any wonder why this generation questions the motives of the church?
