The Christian Testimony
Have You Ever Been Asked: "Are you a Christian?"
My father was one of the finest ministers that ever lived. The things that he taught in church will stick with me for the rest of my days, particularly the statement that he made regarding testimonies.
He said that the most distressing thing that anyone could ever do to him would be to ask if he were a Christian. To think that we aren't presenting a Christian example is something that should disturb all Christians.
In these trying times, I see many people in the media giving praise to God. The next minute, they are in spewing out obscenities like there is no tomorrow.
To coin an old phrase, they want their cake and they want to eat it too. And usually, they do.
Christians do know better than to pull out God when they need Him, then put Him back into their pocket (or pocketbook) when they are done with Him.
What is so bothersome is that the non-Christian community is watching and when they see these types of display, it undermines what true Christians stand for.
There are so many things that we can do for God; He asks very little.
As Christians, it seems like presenting a good testimony for Him is something that should come so easily, but for many - and for money, it just doesn't.
