How Would You Describe Yourself?

Hi friends. I have a challenge for you. In a brief statement describe yourself any way you want so long as you do so thoughtfully and respectfully.  Can you do it?

 

As those of you who have known me for a long time know, I love Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and my Savior, and my King, and I don’t make any bones about it, either. 🙂 You should be who you are, and make no apologies for it IMO. I believe you should use your voice, say what you have to say, but do it respectfully and with love as much as you can, but never allow truth to be compromised in your presence. Be proud (but not arrogant) to be a Christian, and live your life with joy, and remember that your walk in Christ on a daily basis says more about you than any words you say. Actions count. If you don’t believe that read the book of James. it’s one of the best books for understanding Christian conduct, I think, though the whole Bible addresses it throughout.

 

I’m a patriot, and I don’t mind saying so, and when Hillary Clinton called me a “Deplorable” I swore to wear it like it’s a badge of honor! I’ve been called every hateful name in the book over the last eight years by people who know nothing about me, and tell me I’m a bigot because I believe in and worship God, freedom, carrying a gun, and in honoring our military, and believing that people, all people, should learn how and why someone should be responsible for themselves.

 

I admit that I have little to no patience with people who like to blame others for everything that goes wrong in their lives; who burn and trample the flag, who have no respect or consideration for the beliefs of others, and who think that they have the right to tell me what to think and how to live when they can’t even manage their own lives in a half-way decent and kind way.

 

I believe in the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and that keeping the Electoral College is crucial to keeping the integrity of our governmental system, and the elections we have. I hate what the liberal, cultural and progressive elites have done to our country and our system of education in which they’ve become propaganda merchants, instead of truth-tellers, and that the media (especially the liberal media) have become lap dogs for every lie, half-truth, and falsehood that’s put in front of them.

 

I’ll tell you that I’m far from perfect, and I’m prone to making mistakes and bad decisions, and I can be so stubborn, prideful, and self-righteous that I’m ashamed to call myself a Christian.  That’s when I’m so glad that I can go before God, confess my sins, and ask forgiveness.  The truth is that without Christ Jesus I’m not much, but with Him I have everything.

 

I don’t hate anyone.  I may not agree with some things people do, or with some things people think, because of my beliefs, but I couldn’t care less about what color skin people have, how they dress, where they come from, or what they practice, so long as they don’t try to push if off on me.  I think people, all people, should be held accountable for what they do, and that anybody that comes here should do so legally.  You want to come to America, then adopt our way of life, and assimilate and become an American.

 

That’s it.  Now how would you describe yourself?

From “The Word For You Today” by Bruce Christian, What Kind of Example Are You (7)

      This is the last in this particular series, but if you’ve enjoyed Bruce’s writing, and would like to see more I’d be happy to share more of his devotionals with you.  I believe that Bruce has some of the best devotional writing I’ve ever had the privilege of reading.  He has a heart for God through and through.  I hope you’ve been as blessed through his writing as I have been.

WHAT KIND OF EXAMPLE ARE YOU (7)

     The word “purity” refers to that which is not polluted.  Pollution causes disease and death.  The products on the grocery store shelf may be beautifully packaged, but when food-borne illness results, we must go back to the source and find the problem.  What is it?  Careless, cost-cutting methods that not only permit disease but promote it.  Consider this: some of the things that entertain us today would have shocked our parents and grandparents.  Is that because we are more enlightened?  Look around you and judge for yourself!  While living under his father’s authority the Prodigal Son was well off.  But in search of enlightenment and entertainment, he ended up in a pigpen.  Yes, he was forgiven and welcomed back home, but he lost a lot in the process.  Today the world of politics, education, and entertainment are battling for your mind, your attention, and your allegiance.  So here’s a Scripture you need to think about carefully:  “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” (Php 2:5 NKJV).  In other words, submit your thoughts to God.  If He approves them-they’re okay.  Paul writes: “We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do.  We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.  We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God.  We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ” (2Co 10:3-5 NLT).  If you don’t “capture” wrong thoughts and submit them to the test of scriptural truth, they’ll lead you in the wrong direction.
