In talking with people about christianity I find that the biggest road block is that alot of people seem to think that most christians lead double lives, or that our religion is just one big contradiction. Taking some time to reflect on this, I can see how some may think this way. We get that good godly rush on Sundays, but then we live our lives in a worldly way Monday thru Saturday. If we don't "practice what we preach" 7 days a week instead of 1, the example that we need to set for those who are lost is not going to be noticed. I could not have been more guilty of this. I would walk into church on Sunday, and by 12 o'clock I was on fire for the Lord, I would walk out of those doors ALIVE! I was gonna save the world. By Tuesday I wouldn't even know God myself......... What kind of example was I setting? Could someone look at me or talk to me and know that I was a believer? Of course not. So if this whole religious thing was suppose to be so wonderful, why was I contradicting my beliefs in such a worldy way? If I was a non-believer and I saw those types of things, I wouldn't be busting thru a church door either. The other day I was flipping thru the channels on TV, and there was this awards show for rap music. Anyway what caught my attention was this particular winner, I believe his name was Ludacris. During his speech he said "I would like to thank Jesus Christ...........Yet on his CD cover it states it contain explicit lyrics and sexual content. What kind of message is he spreading?!? I can see why some people call us (christians) contradictive. Somehow I have to doubt his sincerity, and I wouldn't offend other christians by calling him one. Fortunatley the Lord has really laid it on my heart to be a better example for him. Not just for 1 day, but everyday. Let your actions, not your words speak for you. Don't leave the slightest of doubt in anyones mind about your salvation. I have found that in moments of weakness or temptation I ask myself, and I challenge you to do the same, If God was to come back right now, what would I do? Hide because of what I was doing, or stand there with open arms.......... Now and until my time on this earth over, my arms are open, and I pray that each of you are standing there with your arms open to.
