Outside in the rain just now, I wondered again why on the internet, Christians easily ‘speak’ of Jesus without any qualms? Yet, why it is that when I go to church, sit in the pew or on the modern conference chair, speak to those around me, later stand in the foyer [or lobby if it is a theatre-church] — why is it that no one speaks about the most important person in my life — Jesus.? Instead the conversation drifts to the movie seen last night, or the neighbor who plays that horrid loud music, or the boss that doesn’t understand, or the child who resists everything just to resist everything? Conversation? Actually, most of the time the talk is more akin to gossip. Why is it, if we are going to speak of Jesus at church, we have to join a ‘life group?’
How is it we claim that Jesus is the most important person in our lives, but we never talk of Him?
