Do we talk too “christian”?

So what is it that we talk about the most during the day? Do we talk about ministry, the book we are reading, the new cd we have just bought, or in some cases the new cd we have just released? Do we tell everyone how much time we spent this week in prayer, reading the Word or time spent with others in ministry situations? Did we spend an hour in a coffee shop with a friend and discuss what we watched on tv the night before, or on the film we saw last week? Do we talk about the new gear the church has just bought, the great preach we gave or the amazing conference we went to the other month?

When in all the boasting, in all the pride or all the distractions, did we talk about Jesus and what He has done for us and how we love to praise our Eternal God for just being eternal? The amount of time we spend talking about Jesus and His amazing sacrifice shows the degree in which He is placed in our lives. How many more could we give the Gospel to if we stopped talking about ourselves and spend more time with the name of Jesus on our lips? We are in danger of losing the blessings that come with working for Christ by the boasting of these events to others. If we were not full of pride in ourselves, we would not want to talk about what we have done, but what God has done. We would want everyone to know who He is and what He has done.

It may sound so spiritual to use long words in a “christian” way, and others may think we are very clever for using them, but what about those who don’t go to church and we still speak to like that? It is off putting for them, and in a way makes us look silly. We have enough media making us look stupid or radical in a bad way, why make it worse by becoming the people they present us to be?

Maybe if we are more loving and Christ like, we will have even more opportunities to reach the lost and the lonely who are looking for reasons to why they are even here. Why do we live and what do we live for? A question not just for the unbelievers I think.

    This reminds me of what Paul was trying to teach the Corinth church.
