Peer pressure is so powerful when it comes to spirituality.

That’s why those who observe us should never see us cave into the pressure of the non-Christian world that wants us to forgo any expressions of faith.

But do we cave?

Are we silent at work when others start bashing Christianity as rash and judgmental and hypocritical?

Or are we silent when people tell dirty jokes in our presence? Or gossip? Or leer at people for sexual reasons?

Do we invite neighbors to church events or to our house for games? Or do we not want to rock the boat with religious stuff?

We’re called to shine the Light, not put it under a bushel basket.

Pray that I beam more brightly with no fear of the rolling eyes or turned shoulders from the non-faithful.

I can assure you that rolling eyes and turned shoulders from a disappointed Father in heaven are of far greater concern to me than from those who have no desire for the Lord.

Let the words below permeate into your heart and soul today so that you’ll avoid falling into the same trap as those described.

Many people did believe in him, however, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn’t admit it for fear that the Pharisees would expel them from the synagogue. For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.” (John 12:42-43)

As always, I love you
