Put on your Christian Hat
Wouldn't it be nice if people could just look at you and say, “Hey, he is a Christian and I want to talk to him about it.” Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.
At work one day, I wore a Green Bay Packers hat. People saw the hat and many started talking about the NFL and the Packers. At first I was wondering why people were talking football to me. Then I realized it; it was because of my Packer’s hat. I had forgotten that I had it on.
Isn’t it the same for us being Christian! We get so used to ourselves being Christians that we forget we are! We have to do more than just go to church and study the word. We have to witness for God! I say to myself each day, “Lord, help me save one soul today.” We might be doing that each day and not even know it, but the good Lord knows and that is all that matters!
It’s very simple to witness. To this statement, however, you might say in a negative way, “Yea Right, witness?” The good Lord says it is! Just do a simple little things like opening a door and holding it open for a person who has their hands full or just saying, “Good Morning” or “Good Evening.” Jesus wants us to do good deeds for others and love each other. So let’s all start to witness for God!
After a while of seeing that same person being so kind to people, you say to yourself why are they so kind and happy all the time when there are so many problems and troubles all around us? The answer is simple: It’s their faith in Jesus! He is always with us.
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand. – Isaiah 41:13
Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." – Deuteronomy 31:6
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." – Psalm 46
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." – Philippians 4:6–7
So if we do simple little good deeds day in and day out with a smile from our face, hearts, body, and soul we are witnessing for Christ. And who knows what soul we have touched or saved today… only God Knows!
All I know is that we are witnessing for the Lord and he approves of that, so let’s go out and witness today to save a soul!” This way people will eventually recognize that we are Christians. It will turn out the same way as if I wore a Packer’s hat.
- Let’s go out and witness each day.
- Let’s put on our Christian hats.
In doing these things we will find true peace and please our Lord. This is a win/win situation! Praise the Lord!
In conclusion, don’t forget to thank the Lord for all your troubles because we grow from them. You will please Him and you will find true peace which only comes from knowing the Lord personally. So let’s go out and witness today! Let’s create a domino effect on people and who knows… we may save more than one soul today. Only God Knows!
Praise the Lord, Amen!
