January 11, 2015 Verse of the Day

In order to express our faith in Christ, we must have action behind it. What we look like doesn't matter. We can look the part all we want- but if we don't SHOW the love of Christ to others, it's pretty much useless. 

When I was in high school, we had a skit in our youth group called "Dumb as a Stick." In it, the "mature" one kept getting on to the younger one about looking and acting like a chicken, and a racecar driver- "looking and acting like that doesn't make you one and if you believe it does, you're dumb as a stick." At the end, the two are in church. The "mature" one is looking and acting the part of the Christian- but that is all. There is nothing behind the facade.

Now, I'm not implying that if you look and act like a Christian but do nothing to express your faith in the "real" world that you're dumb as a stick- but you're definitely not shining your light for Christ. Consider putting some action behind your faith so that others can see Jesus in you. 

Remember to leave your prayer requests on our Prayer Wall. If you want to be anonymous, you're welcome to send them to me privately and let me know if you wish for me to post them anonymously or not. 

With Love,
