It’s Tough Being Christian

It’s not that the Christian faith has been tried and found difficult, but rather it’s been found difficult and left untried.” G.K. Chesterfield

This is a follow-up to my last post—Do You Pass the Christian Test? Chesterfield said it all too well, with some embellishing by me—it’s difficult being a Christian and left mostly untried by so many. Many “Christians” are so good at talking the talk but stumble when they try to walk the talk. In fact, many don’t even try to walk. It’s easier just talking.

Just think about this—if the third of the world’s population who say they are “Christian” really walked the walk of Christianity the world would be a vastly different place. That’s different as in better.

Change comes about one person at a time. So, my challenge to me, and you, is to walk the walk of Christianity. That means simply following in the footsteps of Jesus. And Jesus’ walk is a walk of love. If you really love others you are walking the walk. It’s that very simple.

Look back on yesterday and ask yourself if you are really walking the walk of love. Be honest. It will tell you if you are really a Christian in walk, or talk only.

Have a good walk today!
