This was a photo going around on Facebook, and I liked it so much I want to share here. Of course, it's no longer current news, but I'd like to share it as an example for those of us who believe in Jesus to follow.
As for me, earlier in the history of this blog, I told myself I won't be so open about my faith in Christ so that I can get a wider audience of parents. I don't think that became the case, and it surely will be even less so as my blog enters its 2nd year of existence. I've decided to be a lot more open about my faith here in Lessons of a Dad, for the same reasons that Tebow is so open with his.
My relationship with Christ is also the most important thing in my life, even above my wife and kids. Shame on me if I don't declare that here...or anywhere.
So, if you have a similar faith but are scared to share it, I feel ya. I was, and in a large part still am, scared to get that "Jesus freak" label from others. Maybe you felt like this guy:
Here's two books that could help you in your plight (one of them co-authored by Fireproof star Kirk Cameron):
- The School of Biblical Evangelism: 101 Lessons: How to Share Your Faith Simply, Effectively, Biblically... the Way Jesus Did
God bless you all!
