Can They See Christ?
A young man got a new job, and he was the only Christian who worked there. When he was asked if the other workers came against him because he was a believer he answered, “O no, they never found out I am a Christian.”
John Osteen said, “The world has got so churchy, and the church so worldly that you can hardly tell them apart.” We should be able to see the difference between the church and the world. Our Christian faith ought to be observable by the life we live.
J. Wilbur Chapman said, “It is not the ship in the water but the water in the ship that sinks it. So it is not the Christian in the world but the world in the Christian that constitutes the danger.” Jesus said that believers ought to be in the world but not of the world. Our commission is to be witnesses to the world.
Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman gave the criteria by which we can judge what is right or wrong in our lives. He said, “Anything that dims my vision of Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps my prayer life, or makes Christian work difficult, is wrong for me, and I must turn away from it.”
Can your fellow workers see by your actions that you are a Christian?
