Smile, You're a Christian

NOTE: Enjoy this guest post from my husband and fellow Pastor, Greg Bishop.

The biggest problem I see with not being excited about our faith is this... If your life is supposed to reflect Christ, what happens when someone sees a sour look on your face all the time?

Which do you think is more appealing?

The Apostle Paul writes in his letter to the Romans that we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2b). That’s easier said than done, isn't it? How do we accomplish such a monumental task? May I suggest that we just make up our minds to obey the word of God.

1 Peter 5:7 tells us to cast all our cares upon Him (Jesus) because He cares for us. It’s just a matter of making up our minds to not let the devil have the upper hand in our lives. We need to devote more of our time to reading the promises of God.

I receive newsletters from David Wilkerson twice a month and have for several years. Once a year, Pastor Wilkerson sends out a small booklet with a bible verse for each day. These verses are promises to us from God’s word. I can't tell you how many times these promises have given me a great start to my day.

We all need to know someone loves us, and when we start reading God’s promises to us, we will realize that The Creator of all has a special love for each one of us.

Now isn't that enough to make you smile and be excited about your faith?
