Chameleon Christian

Chameleons are squamates that belong to one of the best-known lizard families. Research indicates that Chameleon has the ability to adapt his color to make himself indiscernible from the surrounding environment.
.
I admit, during my immature stage as a believer in Jesus Christ, I was a Chameleon Christian. On weekends, I was active with my fellow young people christian activities. Encouraging one another in the church service. While the rest of the week, I was active with some "wordly activities", too. I thought there seems to be no wrong with it. We were not doing some seriously bad things though. But what I did not realized, my conversion should be visible to those surrounded me. Instead of adapting to the world's dark lifestyle, I should have been allowing my "light" to shine on them. There's nothing wrong being friends with the world, but you have to hold your stand, drag them out from the darkness and let your light shine. That is your mission in life. They seriously need you.

"... let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16 NIV

We all make mistakes, it's only natural. The important thing is we see that and correct our ways and then become leaders to Christ. You are far from being a Chameleon now Grace. You obviously have a heart for God. Love your posts,
Tammy

A chameleon Christian--what a true concept, unfortunately.

I'm thankful for God's grace to grow beyond that! :)

I think it is important to be a "good" human being... religious or not.

Grace, I love the verse you ended with - I want it to be my prayer today.
This post makes me think of a song I sang as a child - "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine!"
Blessings!
