Show Your True Colors

Dear Conflicted,

“As Christians we are tempted to make unnecessary concessions to those outside the faith. We give in too much. Now I don’t mean that we should run the risk of making a nuisance of ourselves by witnessing at  improper times, but there comes a time when we must show that we disagree. We must show our Christian colours, if we are to be true to Jesus Christ. We cannot remain silent or concede everything away.” (--C.S. Lewis “God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and ethics, Grand Rapids: Eerdmans ,1970, “Cross –Examinaton,”p.262.)

Jesus did not go along to get along. Conflict can be a very healthy tool. Jesus used conflict effectively on many occasions.

Are you in conflict with anyone right now? Pray that conflict might be embraced and utilized by Jesus to bring fresh spiritual fruit within you and those you are in conflict with. Conflict can be a spiritual gift. Living conflict free often stifles our spiritual journey.

Quote of the day, "If you do not stand up for something, you will fall for anything.”

Prayer: For the healthy life-giving creativity only conflict can offer.

See Mark, chapter 7 for further reflection.

Where is your light shining?
