The Amphibian Church
“Some people have a warped idea of living the Christian life. Seeing talented, successful Christians, they attempt to imitate them. For them, the grass on the other side of the fence is always greener. But when they discover that their own gifts are different or their contributions are more modest (or even invisible), they collapse in discouragement and overlook genuine opportunities that are open to them. They have forgotten that they are here to serve Christ, not themselves.”
― Billy Graham
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Insiders on Purpose
How many of you have tried to invite a coworker to a Sunday service or a prayer meeting and been turned down? Worse, some will make fun of your faith and your church. What are we doing incorrectly in our approach to our workplace?
They’ll say, “Don’t go there because they’ll brainwash you.” To some extent, this is correct. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,” Paul says. Then you will be able to test and approve God’s will, which is good, pleasing, and perfect (Romans 12:2).” Doesn’t this sound like brainwashing?
Integrity in Daily Life
People will accuse Christians of having a hidden agenda if we invite them or treat them well. It doesn’t have to be hidden. That is correct. We do have a plan. We have the intent to spread the word about the gospel. We intend to lead them into a relationship with Christ.
We must be intentional in bringing the presence of Jesus into everything we do, whether it is at work, in our hobbies, or our social interactions. We don’t have to preach. We don’t need to pull out our Bibles and quote verses constantly.
All we have to do is bring Jesus’ presence by living our lives with integrity. We must serve as living epistles, telling the world about Jesus’ power and how he could change our hearts, minds, and stamina. How can people see the beauty of our faith if our lives do not appear to them to be pleasing?
Everything you do must bring God glory. You can’t talk about the Gospel one minute and then curse your boss and your company the next. It takes effort to represent Jesus. There is no such thing as a “haphazard” Insider. It is not a “hit or miss” situation. Either you are an Insider for God, or you are not.
People do not need to read the Bible to become acquainted with Jesus. They must first see your lives to understand what Christianity is all about. Your life must reflect the message you will deliver.
