I've been a Christian since I was a little girl. I remember talking and praying to him all day long. I was raised to know God. I turned my back on God for some time (mostly was in the compromising stage) (which I am not proud of) Then re-dedicated my life to the Lord about 9 years ago. God is still working in me. I am ashamed to say I never really shared my faith. Afraid of what people or family would think of me. Now that I am "growing up" I find that I am sharing my faith more and more. I am ashamed to say that I sometimes get embarrassed. Sometimes when I sense that the person I'm talking to is NOT a Christian,I hold back... which is horrible!!! I am trying to find a balance. I don't mean to preach to people and throw scripture down their throat but I often wonder if WE as Christians really believe the bible and believe God is coming back soon then why aren't we yelling it from the roof tops??? Why are we so relaxed when we know those we love are going to hell??? Why aren't we doing what ever we can to share with them in love.
I always said I'll just keep having babies so my family will keep having to come to church dedications if that's the only way they will attend church. haha!
Talking about Jesus should just be natural for us. It should be part of our every day life. Like talking about my kids or my husband.
I think the one thing that I am learning is that my relationship with Christ should be a constant communication with HIM. Not just scheduled prayers like bedtime etc, devotional time or church on Sundays. It is in the car, the shower... I try to "call" HIM first with exciting news instead of rushing to call Justin,my sisters, my mom or whoever I can get a hold of. We should have a relationship with him like we do our close family and friends. How we talk about HIM to others should be the same as we talk to others about our kids husband etc. If I am living "in HIM and HE in me" sharing my faith regularly becomes the very act of living. I can not live a day without sharing Christ if HE is truly living in me and I am living in HIS will. Right????
Christ can not live within me if I am not loving others. Christian, non-Christian, whatever race, religion, whether someone is a friend or not. I have to love them all as Christ loves them. It really doesn't matter how I see them or how I feel that I have been wronged by them.. I need to choose to see them as Christ sees them. A child of God, created in HIS image... forgiven, like me, for whatever sins. I have to separate myself from the role of judging and take on the role of loving unconditionally, in ALL circumstances....
This is hard!
I think sometimes us Christians are just too busy...
What about you? Do you regularly share your faith? Or are you embarrassed or hold back like me? Or are you just a "Christian on Sunday?"
What's a blog if you can't post about stuff that's on your mind.....
P.S. Just finished The Case for Easter by Lee Strobel
Interesting to read medical evidence!
I am addicted to Godtube.com just as much as I'm addicted to etsy.com lately. It's like utube but Christian-like.
Check out this video. Satan definitely has some creative ways to get into our lives.
WATCH EVEN IF YOUR TOO BUSY!!!!!!!
