There is no such thing as a silent Christian

There is no such thing as a silent Christian

Have you ever run into someone who seems downright uncomfortable when you mention Christ in your daily conversation?  I notice that from time to time when I talk with people.  Mentioning something that Christ has done for me while in the middle of a conversation is like breathing for me.  It just happens.

Recently a woman told me that she preferred I did not mention Jesus as it made her uncomfortable. She told me that she was a Christian but it was something that she considered to be private and personal. She did not think it was appropriate to make mention of Christ to others.

I was quite taken aback, and the song that I learned as child came flooding into my mind.

This little light of mine.
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine.
I’m going to let it shine.
Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel.
NO!  I’m going to let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel.
NO!  I’m going to let it shine.
Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine.

If you know Jesus, like I know Jesus, you don’t want to keep Him to yourself.

Don’t isolate yourself when you have something worth sharing. There is no such thing as a silent Christian.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
