Because I’m a Christian…
I don’t smoke/drink
I don’t fight
I don’t curse/cuss
I don’t fornicate
I don’t ____________________ (fill in the blank).
I’ve often heard some friends of mine say they don’t do a certain thing because they’re a Christian, but in turn do something else that doesn’t bring glory to God’s name either. I recently saw an episode of the well-known choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson show, the Dance Scene. The episode I saw was of Laurie Ann’s dancers performing at a fashion show. There was a little confusion about the dancers rehearsal and the runway. The short of it is the event planner became a little ‘snappy’ with Laurie Ann, in turn Laurie Ann told her to calm down and instructed her team to go outside. At this time Laurie Ann made statements of going off on the event planner and calling her names that I want repeat but I think you understand… After all of that Laurie Ann said she didn’t do anything because she is “saved”. My first thought was she must not be saved from cursing, yet?!
Is being a Christian about a do & not to do list or relationship?
It all depends on the individual. As a Christian we are supposed to behave differently because of the love and relationship we have with the Lord! For example, don’t just not have sex before marriage because someone has told you not to. Don’t have sex because out of your relationship with God you don’t want to hinder that relationship in anyway.
Moving into the month of May let’s make our life decisions and lifestyle be based from the relationship we have with our Lord. Please note your lifestyle is only a reflection of how serious your relationship with God is.
Are you in a true relationship with God?
Does your life scream JESUS out loud?
Scripture of the day: “Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.” (Matt. 7:20 NIV)
