If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?


This is the question that we were asked at Church today.

Think about how you would answer this.

Would you be able to prove that you are a Christian? How? I loved this question & wanted to pass it along to you to ponder for a while.

Think about this question for a few moments and think about what you have done this past week that would prove this. Have I helped someone? Refrained from gossip? The list, of course, goes on & on. There is nothing that is overlooked. We all have the decision everyday to either do what He would want us to do or to do what We want to do.

Are we helping our children to learn to do the right thing? They follow what we do, not what we say. I can tell my children all day that they need to eat fruits and vegetables, but if I am having ice cream… guess what they want? (I use Ice Cream as my example because we all know what a weakness that is for me!)

My friend, Samantha, told me recently that she has been thinking about how we need to really live the best life that we can because we only have one. She said that we need to go out of our comfort zone if it means helping someone else. What a great point she made. Do what is right. Be kind to others. Do we see someone that needs uplifting & try to uplift them?

Teach your children now, while they are just children, so that when they are adults, if they “were arrested for being a Christian”, they would have enough evidence to be convicted.

I loved this quote & wanted to share it with you. I hope that you get as much out of it as I did.

Have a wonderful day!
