I am a Christian, can’t you see that? I go to church on Sunday even though I get there late, sometimes hung-over. I may not wave my hands or give God praise like he is due, but at least I’m there. Isn’t that good enough? I might gossip and talk about folk I say are my friends, but that’s alright, God said he’d forgive me. I hate on people’s blessing because I feel like I should be getting blessed too, but that’s alright too, because God said he’d forgive me. Doesn’t that still make me a Christian?
I sometime take my blessings for granted, I even misuse people; my friends, family, sisters and my brothers. I’m supposed to be my brother’s keeper, to be there when they need me but I’ll spread their business faster than a gardener planting seeds. I’m supposed to pick up those that fall, pray for those that are lost; but usually I’m only on “Christian duty” when it is convenient for me. Isn’t that ok? Won’t God forgive me for it? I am supposed to pay tithes from the job that I am blessed with, but I saw this pair of shoes that I just had to have so I’ll pay God later. Chile, God knows my heart! I saw this man begging and even though I had the extra money, I decided not to give because he should get a job too. Humph, God didn’t say be a fool! But I am a Christian, can’t you see?
Who am I to choose when it’s ok to do God’s will? When he’ll see me through any situation, if I would just keep still. Who am I to choose what Sunday I go to give God praise; when God was the one that lifted me, my bowed down head he raised. Who am I to be a “fair weather” Christian, a some-timer for God; when he is the one that has kept me, all my problems he solved.
Will it be too late for me to change, will I have enough time? Or will it be too late for me to let my light of God shine? Will I get the opportunity a change before my time on this earth ends, will I be able to apologize to my family, say I love you to my friends? Will God give me the chance to show him that I am walking his path? I guess I’d better start today, this moment to be the Christian that God has ordained me to be. I am a Christian, you will see!
