Keep shining

Have you ever been made fun of because of your faith?
Have you ever been belittled because of it?
Have you ever been mocked?

If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, and you’re not hiding your faith…
It’s a virtual certainty.

It could be a friend, a family member, a stranger…
It could be a coworker, a classmate…
It could be anyone.

But, why?

You’re walking in the footsteps of your Savior.
You’re a reflection of Jesus.
You’re a Christ follower.

Which means you’ll have moments of being made fun of…
Moments of being mocked…
Just like Jesus.

“…If they persecuted me, they will persecute you…”
(John 15:20, NIV)

So, I want to encourage you…
When you’re faced with moments like this, don’t be surprised by this.
You’re in the world, but not of the world…
It’ll happen.

Your Jesus-led life simply shines light on their pride-led life.
Your life serves as a source of conviction…
That’s wonderful.

So, if it happens, know your stirring up conviction…
That’s what’s driving their actions.
You’re striking their hearts.

They mock to try to protect their pride.
They want to elevate their self-defined truth, over your God-defined truth.

It’s just exposing the emptiness of their humbleness.
It’s conviction they need.
It’s Jesus they need.

Your life is a bright light.
Keep shining.
