I was thinking today while running, I wonder if I am making an impression for the good in my world meaning to the people around me at both work, church and my family. In the same way; I do consider myself to be a “Christian” but prefer the term “Christ follower” and I think of all the new stories I hear almost daily how so called “Christians” are making really bad impressions to the world at large and it really hurts me to see that. I think back to Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert and what a mess of an example they made to the world and wish things of this mangitude would not happen but understand it probably always will. Some of my other thoughts are that “people of the world” would not want to become “Christians” seeing all of this hypocrital stuff going on in the world which brings me to why I am writing this Blog.
Having mentioned all the bad “Christian” views our world may have I would hope that people will see something different in me and my world, Similarily; I would like to mention that people like Billy Graham and Chuck Swindol just to name a few are living the “Christian life” the “correct way” and I am proud to say these men are true “Christ followers” and they and their ministries are living examples that the world can see. I guess I want the world to see that “my life speaks so loud of Christ’s love” that people may not hear what I am saying but will sure see it by example. I am not saying that I am there yet but I want to say with the apostle Paul from Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
