Okay, so I would like to address a touchy subject. I realize this may cause some issues, which I promise is not my intention! I just want to be honest about something that is on my heart.
We have all seen those Facebook share pictures and statuses. Especially the ones that say “if you do not share this you are denying Jesus and the Bible says, “if you deny Jesus in front of man then Jesus will deny you in front of God.”
It’s not that I don’t enjoy seeing the positive scripture pictures, and even some of the nice messages that might come through a chain status, but here is how I feel about them:
You may notice that I never share those things, and if I do share something like that it is usually an extremely rare occurrence. The reason is simply because I just don’t think God ever intended for our salvation to be determined by what we share on Facebook. I think our salvation should be present through our everyday actions and how we treat others.
In Mathew 5:13 it says, “You are the salt of the earth.” You see, Christians are salt. Salt makes you thirsty. We need to be asking ourselves do we make anyone thirsty for Christ, the water of life?
I want my salvation to be present throughout my life and seen by how I treat others, and I hope that people can see it without me needing to share a chain status. I do not fear for one minute of denying Jesus in front of others if I choose not to share that status, because I strive to make Him a part of my everyday life.
One day I know I will get to heaven and meet Jesus, and I want to feel as though I am living a life that makes Him proud. Today, I challenge you to strive to make someone thirsty!
