Everything Else Is Window Dressing

Your relentless passion for God is your true testimony. Everything else is window dressing.

In Your Heart Of Hearts



The worst thing about falling for social media Christianity is that the first person you deceive is yourself.

People would see you as being on fire for God but in your heart of hearts you know you are not burning.

Or, even if you are you are burning, you may not exactly be burning with a sincere passion for God.

Once you start mastering the language, style, rules, and expectations, it’s easy to believe that you’re making spiritual progress. But the true signs of your spirituality are mostly invisible to others.

And if you really want to be authentic, you need to spend more time focused on your secret place of worship and your growing awareness to God’s constant transforming presence.

This passion for God is your true Christian testimony. Everything else is window dressing.

Being honest with yourself can be pretty hard, but it’s important. You have to know where you stand when no one is watching.

If you are embarking on a project, or you find that you’re making changes in your life, you need to ask yourself whether those changes are for the approval of others or in order to facilitate your spiritual growth. If you’re doing it to impress others, sweetheart, don’t bother.

The only way we’ll truly beat this social media hypocrisy is by being willing to recognize that every single one of us is learning on the spiritual journey. The effort we waste on appearing "on fire" to others and ourselves is fruitless, and only the effort poured into our passion to become like Christ truly matters.

Alrightie, let's not condemn ourselves. Just because we have sinned, fallen short, and been hypocrites does not mean we should throw in the towel and live recklessly. Nah. Now it's a better time to re-align ourselves with God and allow Him to begin the messy, mysterious and often heart breaking work of fixing our twisted lives.

We can ACTIVELY choose to TOTALLY seek Christ fully, obey His commandments and desires for our lives, and follow Him honestly and wholeheartedly.

It’s a journey. But it's worth it. 

Happy New Week!

Are you burning? With what?
