Show Your True Colors


Matthew 5:48
Be, perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

In this passage Jesus states that we are to be perfect therefore as your Heavenly Father is perfect. But how can we be perfect? We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. To me it is simple. LIVE A LIFE THAT THE WORLD WILL NOT QUESTION IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN!!!

When I was 12 years old I moved from the state of Kentucky to the state of Alabama. One of the first things I learned about our beautiful state was football is B I G!!! In the state of Alabama you either bleed crimson and white or you bleed orange and blue!! There are few exceptions to this rule. Generally you are either an Alabama, ROLL TIDE FAN or you are an Auburn, WAR EAGLE FAN!!!

I work in a very public place; the local town bank in Jasper Alabama. In my sleepy little town, football  is an everyday conversation whether it is football season or not!!! Let me tell you, in the state of Alabama and the county  of Walker......everyone has a HUGH opinion!!!

It has always been very interesting to me to listen to people talk. Some like to joke around, carry on and have excellent sportsmanship while other's  conversation
usually turns into an argument and the sparks begin  to fly! Regardless of which kind of fan you are, I have observed  that a persons true colors eventually comes out!!!

That is the way our lives really are. We can go to church on Sunday living like we are holier than thou when really we have been out  all Saturday night living like the devil!!  In the end your true colors will always  surface .

My Pastor says Christians live in a glass house and I have found that to be very true. Being a Christian means you don't have to be perfect but you MUST live Christ like!

How will people ever know or understand the urgency of giving their life to Jesus if all they can see is you living on the fence? Preaching   about Jesus one minute and throwing caution to the wind and living for the devil the next ?

Give your heart to The Lord. Be committed ONLY to Christ! Quit playing games ! Stand up and let your light shine bright for Jesus!!!! Don't let your light be dimmed by evil! Never leave people to wonder. SHOW  THE WORLD YOUR TRUE COLORS, SHOW THE WORLD JESUS!!!!
