“If you’re a Christian…you’re not supposed to drink.”
As I order a second glass of wine.
“If you’re a Christian…you’re not supposed to talk like that!”
As I cover my mouth after dropping the F-bomb.
“If you’re a Christian…where’s your Bible?”
As my husband and I enjoy a night out dancing with friends.
“If you’re a Christian…you hate gays.”
As I’m sadly reminded of my uncle who died of AIDs.
“If you’re a Christian…you think you’re perfect.”
As my poofy, frizzy hair won’t style and I question where I stand in this world.
“If you’re a Christian…I bet you only watch FOX News.”
As I flip the channel from CNN to BBC to MSNBC.
If you’re a Christian…
I am a Christian…I know I am broken,
but through Christ, I’m still loved unconditionally.
I am a Christian…I fall short every day,
but through Christ, I’m always forgiven.
I am a Christian…I question my worth,
but through Christ, my heart is redeemed.
I am a Christian…I have felt alone,
but Christ adopted me into His family.
I am a Christian…I have felt left out,
but through Christ, I found acceptance and purpose.
(Since I am a Christian…I’ll watch all those news channels,
and remember that Christ leads the way! )
