How do you live for Jesus?

How do you live for Jesus?  I recently shared a Facebook post regarding how to debate same-sex marriage and it sparked some interesting comments from Facebook friends.  I am very sensitive (usually) about what to post or not to post on Facebook or other social media, things in print can be misconstrued, twisted, and/or used to hurt other people and most importantly dishonor Christ or our witness.

When is it okay to be silent and when is it okay to speak up?  I want people to know that I love them no matter what, I really don't care what kind of sinner they are; we all sin, I've always said it's just my job to love people.  But that doesn't mean we shouldn't defend our faith.  I was thinking just today that Jesus became sin for me and how dare me not defend Him, it should be my privilege to stand up for my faith, for my Jesus, for the Word of God.

I'll leave you with this:
  1. 1 Peter 3:15 "but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect." - Honor Jesus!
  2.  Proverbs 26:4-5 "Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes." - Don't fall into this trap, it just makes you look like an idiot and won't do anything to further God's kingdom.
  3. John 13:35 "By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." - Love people! Love people by telling them the hope of the Gospel!
