Does anyone else find it odd that Christians hardly ever hold conversations about God? We talk about ourselves all the time.
Here’s how most Christian conversations go…
“I’m busy…” “People are bad…” “I’m stressed…” “I don’t have time…” “I enjoy life…” “They should do better…” “I like sports…” “Pray for her…” “I don’t understand…” “The weather is nice…” “The Bible doesn’t say that…” “I don’t like that music…” “The sermons too…” “It’s too hot/cold……” “My work…” “My kids…” “My vacation…” “I’m tired…” “I’m sick…” “I’m angry…” “I’m happy…” “I think…” “But…” “That doesn’t apply to me…” “If they would only…” “I can’t…” “I won’t…” “I don’t care…” (Eye rolling, shoulder shrugging, sarcastic grin)
How often do you talk about what God wants; what God can do; what God is doing?
How often do you tell others you love God and you’re seeking to live a life that pleases Him?
How often do you think about Him during your day? By think about Him, I mean think about how you can best please and serve Him; how you can introduce others to Him?
How often do you listen to sermons and consider God instead of the speaker; consider how God would have you respond; how He would have you live?
How often does your consideration lead to change in your life?
Who is this Christianity thing about? Be honest, is it about you or Him according to your thoughts, actions, and conversations?
Is this about the kind of person I am, or is it about God?
Read this one passage and use all of your heart to answer that question honestly…
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.(Matthew 6:33-34)
Does something need to change? Should God be our number one priority, or is this all about us
