Earlier while I was in the jeepney, I was thinking about Christianity. My mind was off. Like the noise of the world is being drowned by my pondering. I was thinking about Christians. About Christians who aren't real.
Suddenly, when I came back to my world because of a nonstop woman infront of me babbling about something (loudly). Well, she got my attention. She was talking about Christians. Look at that! Something in tune to my thinking. Anyway, she talked about "FAKE" Christians. She kept talking about a Christian family who brags about their riches and who aren't really Christians with their lifestyle. Okay I was just listening. She was telling the world about it. hehehe! jk
Then, I thought to myself, how many Christians in this world aren't real? If only they know the real meaning of CHRIST-ianity.
Being a CHRIST-ian is NOT a trademark. It is not used to label ourselves for the sake of having an identity. First, you need to find your identity before you name it. Be careful with what you label yourself with.
My friend, if you are a CHRISTIAN, please represent CHRIST in a way that is pleasing to GOD and to others. Yes, we cannot please everyone. Although, we have to live a life for GOD.
1 Peter 3:15-17
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
After hearing a little about her stories, I suddenly thought of a quote I've read weeks ago...
The devil is content to let us profess Christianity as long as we do not practice it.
