Stop Remaining Silent About Christ

Enough is enough, how long are we going to stay silent.

Our life is but a vapor.

(NIV) James 4:14, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”

We are surrounded by people who do not know Christ. Who do not know that following what the world says is sin. People who have been hurt by hypocritical believers. They don’t know Christ. They don’t know sin. They don’t believe in Hell.

We don’t want to push people. We don’t want them to feel like we are shoving something down their throats. Church of Christ there is a way to talk about Jesus and sin WITHOUT condemning and acting like God to others. But indeed, people may not want to hear it at all. People may feel even talking about Christ repeatedly is too much.

But the eternity of Hell is very real.

When we face the Lord can we truly say we did EVERYTHING we could so that people could see Christ in us, that if those around us were asked, by what we have shared with them they would at least understand Jesus and sin (whether or not they believed and followed Him.)

I see bloggers shy away from this. We have a podium, why can’t we use it for Him? It’s ok to talk about light subjects. But as a Christian blogger how much of our content reflects Christ? If we are Christian, why are we NOT talking about Christ?

Why are we so afraid to not talk with others? To not open up about why we believe, especially with those around us? Jesus should not be PART of our life or routine. HE IS LIFE! But more often than not, we choose our own life over everything else.

(NIV) John 12:25, “Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”

(NIV) Matthew 10:39, “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”

I need to be more open on my own social media, one in particular where I know a lot of people in real life. I can’t be afraid people are going to leave me, not like me, or leave angry comments because of what I am saying. I need to do this in love for Christ to share what He has done and where He has guided me.

This is not about slamming down a mallet and yelling at people in the streets. This is not about telling people they are going to Hell, leave someone’s individual judgment for God. But share that sin is how people go to Hell. 

(NIV) Proverbs 27:20, “Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes.”

It is crucial when we share, we are aware of how we are speaking to others. Not everyone will accept what we have to say, especially in this world focused on the sin of the flesh and glorifying it.

I’ve warned about passion, and I stand by it. We cannot be the kind of passionate Christians many think we are allowed to be. This passion I am speaking of is not zealous. It is not the same passion/anger Jesus had when He fulfilled prophecy, and we better be careful about justifying our anger to His anger. Christ is love, a love no mortal will fully ever understand.

Don’t be angry at sinners.

Don’t be angry at other believers, especially when they fall.

Do not use heated rage to condemn others.

Do not use pride of knowledge on God and/or scripture to belittle others and puff ourselves up.

Let go of frustration and HOLD ON to mercy.

(NIV) James 2:13, “because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”

We can’t bottle Christ. We can’t just keep His salvation to ourselves, how selfish are we? Scripture poses the question of how willing are we for Christ? Would we die for Him? Would we risk rejection for Him? Would we risk isolation for Him? Would we risk hate? Would we risk pain for Him?

It’s easy to be in our home with stability in our life and say, “Absolutely, I would.” There’s no pain involved. 

But when push comes to shove?

What is our heart really saying?

Can we admit it?

(NIV) Proverbs 15:11, “Death and Destruction lie open before the LORD– how much more do human hearts!”

Because God already knows.


How has God stirred your heart for others?

And Remember...Be The Salt Of The earthAnd The Light On The HillWe Are His Branches1

Past Monthly Scripture – (NIV) Psalm 139:23-24, “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

  1. Too many Christian’s have been silenced by political correctness, time to come out of the confessional and proclaim the Name of Jesus. One great advantage if anyone is locked up for proclaiming the Name of Jesus, a captive audience that can’t get up and leave.

  2. Amen to this! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about being silent about Christ, and this post is definitely an encouragement to get out there and tell others about Him. He died for us in public so why should we live for Him in private? Thanks for sharing this post! 💕

  3. You made several convicting points. I cringe when I see Christians in heated debates with non-believers. It doesn’t start this way, but snark and insults always come out by a certain point. It doesn’t reflect or please Jesus when we do this. I’ve been guilty in the past, but thank God for showing me how to have a humble heart. [I’m still a work in progress, of course.]

    I want to be more discerning and bold with seeing opportunities to share the good news and acting on it. Just gotta pray for the Holy Spirit’s empowerment at all times. I feel the urgency in what you say on this topic of life being short and needing to share the good news with others. I worry for those (even some of my loved ones) who are “against organized religion” and hold their faith as a private spirituality. I hope that God’s mercy will envelop them and embrace them after death anyways, but I can’t imagine that person being called “a good and faithful servant” if they never served God or anyone because of their faith.

    1. Leave that part to God 🙂 in regards to family members. Praise His name for being merciful and guiding us and when we make mistakes. It is wonderful when He teaches us and humbles us. It really is important we pray for His hand to be in all things.

  4. Being audacious about my faith has been something that has been heavy on my faith recently and yesterday I also shared this with the youths in bible study. The reason many don’t speak up is fear. There are so many barriers trying to prevent us from speaking about Christ. But perfect love cast away fear. So when we love Christ and allow His love to permeate our hearts, we will share about Him. The word of God is the power to salvation.

  5. Hmmm very convicting post indeed. You know this has been tugging on my heart this week. I mean I do let people know about Jesus but that spirit of fear rises up of no where and stops me from not telling more others than I should. Whenever it does, I rebuke it with the word of God but I believe God is cutting off that fear which He hasn’t give to me daily in Jesus name!
    We really need to go out there and let others know about Jesus. We can’t keep it to ourselves. We can’t be “comfortable Christians”
    Bless you always!

  6. Thank you for this post! Your post is my answered prayer! God has impressed to me to make a blog that focuses on encouraging people through His words. It is a big challenge for me since I am new in this platform and I have some insecurities about writing. Thank you because your post encouraged me to focus more in Him than in myself. I am praying for Spirit-led & Spirit-guided writings for the both of us.<3
