When you announce to the world that you are a believer, you are putting yourself out there for judgment. The world automatically views you as something whether or not their stereotypes are true or not. I hate that. The world wants to talk about everyone being equal, but that normally means as long as you are not Christian among other things. If you are a Christian, you are expected to keep your faith to yourself, but anyone else is free to share.
Anyway, that was NOT the reason I started this blog post!
As a believer, you have a certain standard to live up to. There are things you should do and things you should not do. You are representing the Lord Jesus Christ and you need to remember that in all situations. Which means if you are in a marriage, you are responsible for making sure you do everything possible to make it work. Divorce really shouldn’t be an option. If you are working a job, you should work with integrity, as if you are working directly for God. You are representing Jesus to your coworkers… that means you shouldn’t be texting or talking on the phone or posting on Facebook or twitter or writing blogs while you are at work! If you are talking on the phone to a bill collector or a telemarketer, you should not start screaming at them no matter how annoying they are!
Maybe you think no one will know… But God knows. And you know. It is up to us to reveal Jesus to those around us all the time. That means everyone we come in contact with. EVERYONE. End rant :).
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
