I find it very interesting when people profess to be followers of Christ, but have never told anyone outside of church that they are saved. It seems like a contradiction or somewhat hypocritical. I don't understand how people can live "holy" on some days and live "worldly" on others. In my opinion, being Christian is a life-changing decision that consumes your entire being. It is a relationship that surpasses all relationships. Being a Christian is a decision that I am proud to acknowledge before any one.
I still crack jokes with my friends and go to social events. I still listen to music and dance around with my daughter during the BET awards. That does not mean my religion has been placed on the back burner or I have denied God. God wants us to be happy and have fun in this life. After all, it is only temporary. But in our fun, we must remember who's we are and what our purpose is in life. I believe it is also important to be mindful of the people watching you because you may be the only Jesus some people see.
I'm not saying we have to be perfect all the time to tell people about God. We just have to be conscious of our actions, as they are still a representation of God. It does not take fancy words or long soliloquies to tell someone about God. It simply takes you opening your heart, your mind, and your mouth. The next time you feel afraid to share God, but comfortable enough to gossip or do the latest dance craze, think about the person who does not know Jesus. Are you only showing them a contradictory part-time Christian or an all day everyday praising the Lord and enjoying life Christian who knows their boundaries?
I refuse to disown the Holy Trinity. I can't imagine my life without God. Anyone who knows me will tell you I love Jesus and I am not ashamed to shout it out! Are you?
