I posted the content below on Facebook yesterday, and based on some of the comments it struck some chords.
Yesterday I read the following in the February 2013 edition of Charisma magazine:
"I hesitated to accept the gospel in college because of the behavior of people who claimed they were Christians. They were not much different than me. Their language, actions and behaviors weren't so special that I viewed what they had as a better life."
Reading that in the magazine prompted me to re-post what I'd posted here previously. And likely, I'll re-post it again.
Here it is:
GOD knows who this is for...
GOD is honest. GOD is credible. GOD keeps His Word.
Those who represent GOD are charged to represent Him honorably.
You expect GOD to keep His Words but you don’t keep yours.
People don’t trust you because you’re known for NOT keeping your word. When you tell people that you’re going to do something, you need to do it or have a justifiable reason why you aren’t able to do it. And if you are justifiably unable to do something that you’ve indicated, inform people rather than leave them hanging. Follow up with folks. Failure to do so is unloving, inconsiderate, and rude.
When people don’t trust you, they don’t want to hear or read what you have to say about GOD, JESUS and THE HOLY GHOST.
You have little or no credibility and people aren’t feeling you on the gospel talk… Lack of credibility is a poor representation of the Lord. It’s a poor testimony, as well.
GOD NEVER honors or supports dishonesty.
Stop lying or woe…
GOD hates lying. It says so in Proverbs 6:16, 17 - KJV
3 John - KJV
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
...and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:... - Revelation 12:8 - KJV
