Old-Rugged-Cross.jpgCharles Spurgeon once said, “My brethren, let me say, be like Christ at all times. Imitate him in “public.” Most of us live in some sort of public capacity—many of us are called to work before our fellow-men every day. We are watched; our words are caught; our lives are examined—taken to pieces. The eagle-eyed, argus-eyed world observes everything we do, and sharp critics are upon us. Let us live the life of Christ in public.”

We really do live in a fish bowl, and it is often when you least expect it.  Far too many Christians say their faith is personal and they are right, it is.  It is not private however.  God calls us to live our lives in such a way that we are salt and light to the watching public.  No closet, private, Christianity allowed.  Your behavior on Monday should be the same as your behavior on Sunday.
