I know, I've posted so many "thought provoking" ya'll are probably sick of them, but I this has been on my mind for the past few days and it seems like I have to say something.
I feel like us home schooled girls, as Christians, aren't too different from the world. Oh sure, we don't do anything "bad". We read our Bibles. We're generally all around nice. But to be honest, I can't really think of someone who I personally know who is completely sold out for Christ. Okay, I can name a few girls. Still, I know so many girls who call themselves Christians . . . and even if they aren't especially sinful, they aren't too different from the world.
I rarely see someone obsess or freak out over Jesus in the blogging community. I rarely see someone leave a comment on a post telling someone about a Bible verse they just read.
And all around the world, we go through these little phases. I'm going to pick on the Hunger Games right now (yeah, I know, I'm cruel, people, I know). I keep seeing comments and squeals about how they can't wait for the movie, how adorable Peeta's jaw is (seriously), and how they sobbed over the deaths in the last book.
I'm not saying it's wrong to read the Hunger Games. It's not wrong to watch the movie. It's not wrong to talk about it.
I just want to say something.
How many times have you talked about how great Jesus is? How many times have you searched the through the Bible? How many times have you sobbed over what you've done to Christ, and what He's done for you in return? Peeta Mellark will never love you. He's fake. Jesus already loves you. He died for you.
I'm not trying to pick on anybody, and I'm sorry if I came across rude to you. But if you call yourself a Christian, please, be one. Don't just say you're one.
