Daily Devotional – 3/10/16 “Who you repping?”

You know, I see people riding around with their favorite NFL team on their car, flags sticking out the windows, bumper stickers, they wear the jerseys, have the license plate, seat & steering wheel covers and floor mats all to ensure you know what team they are ‘repping’ and we don’t think twice about it. Oh but let someone ride around with “I am a Jesus fan” printed on their car, “Jesus Freak” on their shirt or throw a “Super God” party; we’ll label them crazy. Does anyone else find this strange or is it just me? I mean, why don’t we throw up our set for God like we do for the Cowboys? We don’t mind arguing on social media about basketball and football teams but we shut our mouth when it comes to religion. Chile, we will cast our religion to the side before we lay down our favorite teams. It has even gotten to the point where folk will skip church for a game. Why don’t we put out for God like we do for everything else we are addicted too? We’ll pay hundreds of dollars to make sure we represent our team yet we complain when it comes to tithes.

Please don’t get it twisted, I am in no way saying you can’t show your loyalty to the team you’ve been riding with since 83 but what I am asking is; where is your shown loyalty to God? You are fearful of folks knowing you shout in church but you’ll cut up if someone disses your team. Yes, by all means, rep your favorite team but don’t allow that team to overshadow the ultimate team and its leader, God. Baby, I don’t know about you but I’ll never be ashamed to rep God because then He’ll be ashamed to rep me! Don’t only be down for God when it’s convenient to you but be for God at all times. He is for you!

Be a willing worker for God, who is not ashamed yet one who truthfully handles His word by studying to present yourself as one of God’s approved (2 Timothy 2:15)!
