Let Your Light….

30 Nov

It’s been nice to have Christians having some publicity for the right reasons for a change. I think the whole thing started with David Booth of the Vancouver Canucks. After the recent acquisition, Booth was asked to join Craig Simpson and Scotty Oake (please shave your head) to join Hockey Night in Canada After Hours – a segment where they interview a player post game. Given Booth’s recenet recovery from major injuries that have sidelined him, Simpson asked Booth what he learned from those experiences – Booth’s response was that it taught him to put Jesus Christ first in his life (I’m paraphrasing of course). At different times in the interview, Booth continued to mention God and Jesus Christ.

I really appreciated that someone in David Booth’s position wasn’t afraid of the fall out, wasn’t afraid of the criticisms he would get, wasn’t afraid of what his teammates would think. All he probably cared about was sharing something that was very close to his heart.  Its funny how when Christians actually stand up for their faith, how many haters come out of their holes to mock and scorn. The fact of the matter is, if your faith is real, it affects your life, it changes the way you talk, the way you live, the way you love, the way you work, the way you play – IF your faith is real. When you find that your faith is something you hide when its inconvenient, time to do a check up. When you find that you’re afraid of what your friends will think of you if you tell them you’re a Christian, that doesn’t say much of your faith.

Real Faith is Visible. Let your light so shine before men, that they may SEE your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
