I recently saw the movie Do you believe? It was an excellent movie about twelve different people and the way God touches all of their
lives using a variety of different people and circumstances. But within this movie someone asked a probing question, is there enough evidence in your life to convict you as a Christian?
This hit home for me because honestly I struggle with this on a daily basis. I ask myself am I doing enough? What else should I be
doing? I feel like people today, myself included, have become complacent in their faith. When we were not suppose to merely fit in with the rest of the world. We were made to turn it upside down (Acts 17:1-6)!
Jesus said the world will persecute us for spreading our beliefs, but that’s not where it ends. Jesus said but do not worry, rather take heart, for He has overcome the world. Like I mentioned in my previous post, Jesus lived His whole life knowing He would die for our sins, even though He had not sinned himself (2 Corinthians 5:21).
If he can do that for us why can’t we dedicate our lives to him? After everything he has done for us it just seems crazy to me that I do not even have enough courage to tell as many people as I would like about the gospel. And because why? Because I’m afraid to look weird, stupid, or embarrass myself.
I find that way too little of an excuse to not live a radical life for Christ. I want to be moved by Him and the Holy Spirit. I want to be able to walk into the unknown out of my comfort zone to bring glory to Him. That is my prayer for every Christian. I pray that each and every day we step up to the plate and let God work through us.
