When you go to your school and your job, can anybody tell by your actions that you believe in God or can they not tell the difference between what you believe and how you act?

Because you’re always at the club with a drink or talking about somebody else behind their back, and when they finally figure out you’re a Christian, they start talking behind yours– and you wonder why when people look at you, they can’t even respect the fact that you’re a Christian anymore.

 

Because you may be the only example they have and if they can’t tell the difference between your walk and their walk, then they’re not going to follow God’s path.
Does anybody even know that you’re a Christian?
Do the people even know that the God of you is there?
When somebody who doesn’t believe a god loses somebody in their family, do they even think to go to you for prayer because they don’t know where else to go?
And if not, then since when did Jesus become your own personal secret for no one else to know?

Are you serious?
Jesus Christ didn’t get stretched out on the cross so your testimony could be mysterious because silent testimonies have never saved souls, yet our testimonies lay low– and we wonder why the world is raising hell?
Because a lot of Christians are too worried about other peoples’ opinions and too busy trying to save themselves.

You know, I don’t know what’s worse: nobody knowing I’m a Christian or the only people knowing that I’m a Christian are the people in my church.

But what you have to understand is people sacrifice their lives to spread the love of Jesus throughout the earth– and you mean to tell me you’re more worried about what other people may think or believe?
What if Jesus was more concerned about other peoples’ opinions than the salvation you received?

But they made him bleed until he bled, all his blood till he was dead, nails in feet, thorns in head.
What if Jesus was less concerned about spreading the gospel and cared more about what other people said instead, but nah, instead he stood for what’s right just so everybody in the world could know and everybody in the Lyricist Lounge could know that God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

Does anybody know that you’re a Christian by your actions?
Or does everybody think that you’re a Christian because you’re acting?

Does anybody know that you’re a Christian by your actions or does everybody think that you’re a Christian while you’re acting?

And the only reason I’m asking is because half of us are putting on a facade, trying to treat our walk with God like we’re expecting full-time benefits when He’s our part-time job.

But working for God ain’t a part-time gig, it’s not a job or a career; it’s a lifestyle that you live.
Because what you have to understand is one soul’s trash is another soul’s treasure.
And if y’all won’t take the time, then Jay-Z will continue to convince them that Jesus can’t save them with an “Empire State of Mind.”

Does anybody know that you’re a Christian?
Are you letting His light shine through.
And if not, then how many more times are you going to deny Jesus before Jesus denies you?
