A serious point in a humous twist…

You might not be a Christian if…
Last Sunday I brought up the fact that Jeff Foxworthy needs to change his, “You might be a red-neck if…” to “You might not be a Christian if…” I really think the church today needs to ask themselves the hard questions and not pass over them. (After all, that is not what the real Passover meant!) So some things for you to ask yourself today – right now:

If you haven’t talk to anyone about Jesus this week (really this day) you might not be a Christian (check it out – Acts 4:20)
If you haven’t made a disciple, you might not be a Christian (Matthew 28:19-20)
If you only live for Jesus during church service on Sunday, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 1:14, 4:42)
If you pray only at mealtime, bedtime, or when something bad happens you might not be a Christian (Acts 1:14)
If you go throughout most of the day without thinking about Jesus’ gift, you might not be a Christian.
If you look to others as a bother rather than an opportunity to give them Jesus, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 3:1-10)
If you only pray for comfort, safety and good health you might not be a Christian. (Acts 4:29)
If you give to the church only when it is easy and highlights you, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 5:2)
If you serve God only when it is convenient, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 6:3)
If you only speak of Jesus when everyone agrees with what you say and believe, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 7:2-53)
If you want Jesus and the Holy Spirit only for your benefit, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 8:18-19)
If you think following Jesus means beating up others, you might not be a Christian. (Acts 8:1)
If you just want to be saved from hell without having a boss, you might not be a Christian.

This is written to the church, not to those who are not the church. Jesus was very clear – “By your fruit, they will know!” What do “they” know about your Jesus? CHURCH – STOP IT – WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER, THE DAY IS ALMOST OVER, NIGHT IS COMING – GET BUSY FOR JESUS AND NOTHING ELSE!

  1. You are so right Dave! People tell me all the time to start saying “no”. 😉. It is really hard when there is a world full of hurting people out there! God is called us to serve! It is not easy to say no, but believe it or not, I have been saying it more lately. I’m fully aware that I can’t save the world. If I can help someone that needs it, I will. God has blessed me and I will try to be a blessing to others as long as I have the means and strength to do so! We serve an amazing God! He is good all the time!!! 😊
