I am down with the third book for the year (Waaaah! It’s just the third book I have finished so far and still a lot more to go!!!) and am currently reading Xtreme Faith by Kelly Carr. It is a compilation of stories shared by different teens regarding their faith.
One quote taken from Brennan Manning caught my eye and made me ponder on how my life is in the eyes of other people. It states:
“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, then walk out the door and deny him by their lifestyles. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.”
We are God’s representatives in this world, and our lives are the best representation we could have of Him. If we live differently from how we confess Him, then, who would ever believe? I bet I, myself wouldn’t.
This challenged me. I hope all else who declare to be believers of Jesus Christ would be, too.
