Acts 22:15 (ESV)
For you will be a witness for him to everyone of what you have seen and heard.
Many times, our unbelieving family and coworkers -- society in general, can make us feel small and inferior -- like second class citizens -- because we are Christians. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, somehow, we begin to believe it! We become what I like to call "mopey Christians," just moping around, keeping our faith hidden under a bushel, feeling afraid to say a word about Jesus, in fear that we might offend someone! And that's precisely what the enemy wants us to feel!
But we can choose whether or not to give in to his foolishness today! Jesus said that those who follow after Him shall never hunger or thirst -- they have been set free from the law of sin and death -- they've been renewed, cleansed, forgiven, loved with an everlasting love! How on earth can we mope about that??
We need a reality check. We should be holding our heads high today and ready to tell people about the great work he's done in us! We have been redeemed!
Dear Lord, thank You that You have redeemed us. Help us to hold our heads high and be ready to tell others about You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
