We might be the only Bible some people ever read.Wow, that is a powerful thought!
When you really take time to think about that sentence it makes you consider a lot in the way you live and present yourself.
It also makes me think about these words from the beginning of a DC Talk song...
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 lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.Consider that for a moment.
God's standards are high, but I'd so much rather live to please Him than to please an unbelieving world. Not a day goes by that I don't find myself shaking my head in pure disbelief of what some "Christians" will do. I really don't want to be the kind of person who causes those feelings in others.
