Do others know?

“One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.”  Psalm 145:4.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Ezekiel 38-39, Psalm 145, and Revelation 20.

How are things in the closet?

Seriously, are you a closet believer?  Does anybody know?

You would expect folks within your family to know about your belief system, wouldn’t you?

There was a time when being an outspoken believer was easy to do because those in silence were non-believers.  Now, the non-believers are the vocal ones and the believers keep their opinions to themselves.

There are still plenty of ways to express our belief in the Good News.  One certain way is to live it out.  Be Godly in every situation.

I am also starting to use the Comment sections of online news to express what I believe.  I try to remind myself that if I’m spouting anything other than Godliness then I’m working for the other side.  Praying before submitting something is a necessity.

How will they hear if we do not tell?

What do we tell others?  Think about that.  How trivial much of it is.  Not that every conversation has to be heavy but why is so much of what I say to others trivial?  Why can’t an appreciation for God’s presence be part of more of my conversations?

If I insist on avoiding God-talk, then those within hearing range will rightfully assume that I am unaware of God being in my midst.  They will be mistaken because He is in my midst!

“Lord, I am missing too many opportunities to commend You to others.  Your greatness is all around me.  I’m not responsible for any of it yet my silence suggests that I don’t even notice that You are.  O Father, forgive me, I beg.”

If we love God shouldn’t our words reveal that?  How often do we commend Him to others?
