I Am Not A Cool Christian
A lot of Christians these days are cool. Not me. I am not a cool Christian. I may even be the king of uncool Christians.
What does that look like?
I don’t wear V-Necks.
My worship pastor is not a metrosexual.
I still don’t drink, even for missional purposes.
I don’t have a tattoo, even though I don’t care if you have one.
I don’t sing with my hands raised.
I don’t really try or care to be relevant.
I’ve never tasted Red Bull.
I’ve never said the Bible is my favorite book.
My kids never played Upward or Outward.
I’ve never been on a prayer walk.
I’m not crazy about Tim Tebow. I wish him well, just not wins.
I don’t take notes during sermons.
I don’t keep a spiritual journal.
I don’t have a goatee.
I’m not bald….well, not completely.
All of that is ok.
It’s ok if you have or do those things.
Those things do not define us as believers in Christ. If they do, we are a pretty sorry lot.
There is only one thing that defines us. Or I should say there is only One who defines us.
Are you a cool Christian? Or not? What defines you?
