What Kind of Christians Are We?

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

I love dish towels, I have pretty dish towels and I have not so pretty dish towels. I love the pretty towels, I just can't count on them to get the job done, they don't dry very well at all. So these towels are just for looks, they are the towels I use for display. I keep them on one side of the drawer in the kitchen. Then I have some on the other side of the drawer that are not so pretty. They are used and they are worn, but I always reach for them because they get the job done, I pass up the pretty ones to get to the used and worn ones because they are faithful!

What kind of Christians are we? Are we just for display? Do we just stand there with our pretty bibles in our hands?
Are we the kind Christians that people pass up because we don't get the job done? Or are we the kind of Christian that people reach for? We have are used and worn bibles in our hands ready and waiting because we are faithful! This is the kind of Christian I want to be, I don't want people to pass me up I want them to reach for me!


What kind of Christian do you want to be?


Romans 12:11
11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

This makes me think of the Velveteen Rabbit. The more the boy loved on him the shaggier the rabbit got. I hope I extend the love of Jesus; that's what I want to do anyway. Have a great Sunday!

Really makes one stop and contemplate our "usefulness" -- I think all dishtowels as do people have our usefulness whether pretty or not. God has his plans for us whether we see what the usefulness is or not we are all doing what God has planned for us!Sometimes others cannot visually see what the usefulness is but God knows!! Thanks for the insight!

Hi Ginger,
Thank you for your beautiful post - one that makes us really look at ourselves and our "dishtowels". I strive to live my Christian faith every day and to reflect the beauty of God's creation in my art.
Happy Spiritual Sunday.
