Go! Love! Live!

Do you ever wonder what you should do as a follower of Christ?

I know that some people will tell you that you need to be at church on Sunday morning, Sunday night and Wednesday night.  Maybe you should, but I don’t think those are the primary things you should do.

Here is what I think you should do if you are a Christian.

Go!

You should not retreat into some holy, Christian ghetto.  You should go.  Where to?  Wherever.  You cannot make disciples if you aren’t going about your business.  Go out into the world.  Meet people.  Build relationships.  Share the Gospel.  Live it.

Love!

Yes, we should love everyone.  Specifically here I am talking about other believers and followers.  Jesus said that the world would know that we are His disciples if we have love for one another.  That means brothers and sisters in Christ.  That means you are going to have to meet with them regularly.  So do it.  And love each other.

Live!

John writes in his Gospel that he wrote it so that we would believe and have life.  He wanted us to live.  Christ came so that we could not just have eternal life, but abundant life.  That isn’t something that is in the future.  It’s now.  So live.  Enjoy your orange juice and drink it to the glory of God.  Why?  Because you can.  Live!!!

How about you?  Are you going, loving and living?

    Love it! I don’t do a great job of getting out of the Christian ghetto. Most my friends are from church. I want friends that don’t go to church but since I spend most of my time working at one it hasn’t been easy. I’m trying to do a better job of this by working out in the public. I am hoping to build relationships at Starbucks and other restaurants with wi-fi.

      I think that’s definitely a challenge for guys like you, Rob. I would say the model is Paul when he was out in the marketplace in Athens. I think you definitely have to go where the people are. Tattoos with afros will probably help bridge the gap too. :)
