Reflections…

Some thoughts and questions I was pondering today:


"How do people who know you, who read what you write, or who talk to you know you're a Christian?  You say you're a Christian, but is being a Christian just a label applied to yourself, or is it a way of life?
Like Peter and John who said 'For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard,' (Acts 4:20) are you shouting out what you have heard and seen and shining like a beacon of truth for the world to see, or are you just claiming to be a Christian and keeping Christ in a 'little box' somewhere inside of you? 
Are you showing that Christ truly matters to you - that He died, saved you, and He is the reason for your existence?  Are you a Jesus Freak?  Now if you really mean what you say, what are you going to do about it?  


Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
  15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 
 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.       


So help me God.

Those are very good questions to ask. I've asked myself the very same ones several times. And, not only should people see it in our blogs, but in our lives.
The one thing that Christians can do for each other is to pray for their brothers and sisters in Christ. Let's do that.

In Christ,

I saw you got the other comment. I hope you are not ticked off at me; I wasn't sure how that would come across. :)

No, not at all. I sent you a personal message replying to your comment; Google is supposed to send the recipient an e-mail for you when you do that, but maybe you didn't get it.

Oh, okay. I don't think I got a message, but I'll check again. :)

Thank you!
