Not a Name Tag

20130914-230540.jpg

So, I was having a conversation tonight with “Pastor Roo”, who is a man of the cloth and Omega Psi Phi, at the 429. It
was invigorating to us both to see a theatre of 20 and 30 something’s on fire for God. Openly. Then this happened:

Me to others: “you sure you know Jesus?”
Them to me: (arms folded in b-boy stance) yup
Me thinking: …you don’t act like it

…while acting all of this out, I said the following, “some people wear “Christian” like the name on their Walgreen’s badge.”

WOW. Seriously. Even as children we are taught to show how we feel. If you’re happy and you know it… (You can probably finish that) clap your hands. If you are Christian and you know it, then you really ought to show it.

Psalms 107:2 – let the REDEEMED of The Lord say so. The bought back. The purchased. We have been claimed by our kinsman redeemer – Jesus- the least we could do is “show some sign”.

A favorite of mine, Matthew 5:16 tells us to let our light shine! Someone is looking for the beacon that will lead them home. Someone is waiting for you to take off the badge and put on the life. What has Christ done for you? Tell someone. Live Redeemed. Not perfect, redeemed.
