My favorite Bible story is Noah’s ark. Why? Because when God commanded Noah to build the ark, and Noah obeyed, his friends laughed at him. And despite the laughter, Noah still listened to God. And we all know what happened next.
This story has special meaning to me because being unique and different as a Christian can be a good thing. For example, we should feel happy and comfortable about being very open about our Faith. I always share Bible verses, encouraging words, and Project Inspired posts on my Facebook page. My friends see that as different, but I know that it is making a difference when I do so.
Yes, people laugh and think its weird. But it’s like my Dad always tells me: “You have to stand for something!” And that means standing up for what’s right…even if you’re standing alone.
God wants us to make good choices, be leaders, and be good examples. So when everyone else is doing what they consider “cool,” we should do what’s right because that’s what is truly cool.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world. but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will. — Romans 12:2
What we should do is share about how God impacts your life! and all the wonderful things He does for us. Another thing is don’t wait to witness to someone because we not guaranteed a tomorrow. A good song to help encourage you to do that I found recently is “Here I Go Again” By Casting crowns that talks about sharing Jesus with your friends before its to late.
So don’t be ashamed to to talk about Jesus! When you stand up for God you make God proud!
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. — Matthew 28:19-20
It makes me Happy when I praise God and tell other about Him and His unending love! And remember Psalm 28:7-
The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
God won’t give us anything He thinks we can’t handle and He is with us always in the good times and the hard ones. This wonderful song, “I lift my hands” by Chris Tomlin, will help you remember!
We are all special to Him. And every one of us can make a difference!
