Our lives have to match our lips.
Some people don’t share their faith because their lives don’t match up. Others share their faith even though they know it doesn’t.
This isn’t a push towards legalism. We’re not suggesting you need to get your life together in order to love and serve Jesus. However, if we’re going to start claiming and declaring in our work, neighborhood, families, and social circles doesn’t it make sense that their be some evidence?
We’re all growing so do you point people towards a Jesus who loves you in spite of your mess? Do you point them to a God who sees your imperfection and still loves you relentlessly?
Do your words about who Christ is, what he’s done, and his place in your life actually match up the the life people see?
