- Tim Tebow. A football player who prayers by the sidelines and thanks his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
- Billboards that say "Why you should accept Jesus' friend request."
- Wearing shirts that say "Satan Sucks" or "WWJD."
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 states: "That you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, that you may walk properly toward those who are outside and that you make lack nothing."
I have noticed the majority of Christianity wants to be accepted and mainstream by the entire community. But in Thessalonians, we see that this is not how God destined Christianity to actually be. We are to lead quiet lives and to let our actions be more than our words. It is not about being the best football player, the best billboard, or the best phrases. It is about our actions and quietly living for Christ.
