So, how should a Christian think? What is the mindset that characterizes your outlook and actions on a day in and day out basis? If you’re like most people, your mindset has been shaped by your surroundings.
What should our attitude be toward why we do what we do? Unfortunately, much of Christianity is lived today in complete harmony with the American Dream. Almost to the point where we take our relative safety and comfort as a God-given right. But Jesus didn’t have that attitude, and the apostles had to keep reminding the early Christians to have the same mindset Jesus had.
Sometimes it seems that the more things change, the more things stay the same. I remember as a boy seeing signs along the highway that were supposedly messages from God. As you travel along the interstate today, there are still a few billboards with messages from God. A man had purchased space and wanting to remain anonymous conducted an advertisement campaign for God. Here are ten of them.
1. Let’s meet at my house Sunday before the Game. –God
2. C’mon over and bring the kids. –God
3. What part of “Thou Shalt Not…” didn’t you understand? –God
4. We Need to Talk. –God
5. Keep using my name in vain and I’ll make rush hour longer. –God
6. Loved the wedding, invite me to the marriage. –God
7. That “Love Thy Neighbor” thing, I meant it. –God
8. I love you…I love you…I love you. –God
9. Will the road you’re on get you to my place? –God
10. Follow Me. –God
