Am I ashamed? Is it something I should hide? The answer to both of those questions is no, so it raises this new question. Why am I so concerned with what people will think if I mention my love of Christ, or my reverence for God in my posts, or even in my conversations in real life? Really, what’s so wrong with being excited about your Christianity (If that’s your chosen religion) ? My intention is not to offend, and I apologize if I do, but my Christian life is a really big part of who I am, and that, I will not apologize for. The Lord has been good to me, and there is not ONE good reason for me to keep that to myself.
I know that many people out there, maybe even some of you reading this blog have been scared away from the church, because of religious bigotry, discrimination, and sadly, even hatred. But I want you to know that it is my belief that will of God for our lives is to love one another. And love doesn’t leave room for discrimination because of race, religion, sexuality, gender, or whatever else. There’s no room for feelings of revenge, for gossip, for “hating” or any of that mess that the world seems to be so obsessed with these days. So, those are things that you will never see from me, in real life or on my blog. Im not in the business of making people feel unloved or unwelcome.
Am I some perfect, holier than thou , super-sanctified Christian? Absolutely not. Do I make mistakes, do I slip up, do I fall short? Definitely. But will I do my best to show my best, in hopes that maybe I can touch someones life and bring them into the same (hopefully better) relationship that I have with God?
