There are so many Christians that claim to Love God, but they do not acknowledge Him in their actions. We have all been there at some point. We should not fall in that trap that Peter fell into.
We need to be strong in our Faith with non-believers. We are to minister and represent Jesus in everything we do. For if we acknowledge Him before men and women, he will acknowledge us before God the Father and all the angels.
Did we feed Jesus when he was hungry? Did we feed the homeless guy on the street? Jesus tells us that what we do for others, we are doing for him. Did you give water or clothes to the poor? If you did, you did it for Jesus.
“I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God. Luke 12:8-9 NIV
We are to minister with the Word of God to others, but if our actions do not match the Word, we are doing a disservice to our Lord God and other people. I grew up listening to the Hellfire and Brimstone Preaching. This was a dividing aspect to my Faith when I was younger.
Always show the Light of Christ and therefore will see it in you and wonder how they can have it. Be not angry or judgemental when ministering and sharing your Faith. Be gentle and show everyone the respect that Jesus showed and the Love that Jesus gave. You attract more bees with honey. Amen!
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 NIV
