Be the Reason

Set them an example by doing what is good.
                                           —Titus 2:7

When nineteenth-century preacher Phillips Brooks was asked why he was a Christian, he replied, “I think I am a Christian because of my aunt, who lives in Teaneck, New Jersey.”

More than likely, you’re a Christian because you saw one, in a parent, a peer—or an aunt in Teaneck, New Jersey.

Paul instructed Titus to teach the Cretans “sound doctrine”—but repeatedly told him to live it so people could see it.

Be the reason someone will say, “I’m a Christian because of _________________, who lives in __________________.”

Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wonderful passion and purity;
May His spirit divine all my being refine,
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.
—Albert Orsborn

A Christian is usually
someone who knew one.
