Coming out of the Closet???

By David Castillo Dominici @Freedigitalphotos.net Wow… I know that probably gave some of you a jolt.

Let’s tone that down a little with Coming out of the Closet about Christ.  Today we’re thinking about our relationship with Christ.

Is the only place that you say “I love Jesus” is at church?   Or how about “Oh I love you Lord” do you ever say that when not at a Bible Study or Christian Fellowship?

If you’re having fellowship with other believers or non-believers can you be yourself?  If you Love the Lord then say so when you have an appropriate opportunity.   Keeping silent about your Love for the Lord will make others question whether you really do Love Him.

You know how things in Life make you think?   Well I had something happen to me the other day that made me start to think about our profession of Love for Christ.    We can easily profess our love for Chocolate, things we find on Pinterest and Facebook. But can we update our status or simply post for no reason that We Love God or We Love Jesus? Or are we too embarrassed?  Are we so concerned what others might think that we cannot give God even a little praise?

The world needs us.  Other Christians need us.    How will they ever know if we truly Love God when we are always silent. Only God knows the heart, the rest of us are just stuck with what we see and hear in others.   It’s time to come out of the Closet about Christ folks. Let others know that you Love God and profess your love for Him by your life and your mouth.

We do want to be wise around other people.  We don’t want to take advantage of a group of friends thinking they are a “captive” audience for your latest “message”.   Or spontaneously interrupt people with a “Jack-out-of-the-box” profession”

But, there is nothing wrong when someone asks  “What’s up with the smiles? Why are you so happy today?”  you could reply,

“Oh, I’m just thankful.  God Loves me and I decided to wear my Love for Him on my face today.”

Since we’re all big on challenges right now.  How about taking the  “Wearing of God’s love on your Face today” challenge?

Does your schedule resemble a game of pinball more than an hourly schedule?

ID-100123978Pro 8:17  I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

During my morning devotion time.  This scripture made me have an “aha” moment.  I often wonder if God doesn’t go “Yes!!!  She got it!  and has that kind of feeling that a parent of a Basketball player who just made a 3 point basket gets.

It’s true…. life has been wild lately for me and it always amazes that during the that quiet time in the morning how much peace comes from just reading the word, worshiping and fellowshipping with God brings. This is the busiest time of the year for me and my schedule is more like a game of pinball than an hourly schedule.  If it wasn’t for my PODA (Parade of Daily Activities) sheet. I don’t know that I would get anything done.

But this morning was different. Today’s daily Proverb sparked something in me.  I had great peace and things that would normally make me grit my teeth, made me laugh. Starting your day off fellowshipping with God really does make a difference.

So whenever your day starts depending on your work schedule, start it off with God.   You will not believe the difference it makes.
