This simple “Insights” video* story is a great reminder that we more seasoned Christians cannot expect, nor should we expect, baby Christians to look just like us. Based on Romans 14:1, we see how, by extending GRACE, God can calm even the most unexpected “cussing storm”.
*”Insights” videos are meant to share help viewers see Bible and use it as a source for practical Christianity. Sometimes it is difficult to translate the stories and lessons of the Bible into everyday life, but when we see examples (at least for me) it helps the light bulb of understanding shine bright in our hearts and minds. In turn, we are better able to let our lights shine bright for Jesus as encouraged in Matthew 5:15-16: “No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven,” HCSB.
Practical Christianity can be shared by the greatest of theologians as well as the purest-of -heart-everyday-believer who is just as inspired by God’s Word in their everyday life despite no formal training. Practical Christianity comes about when we seek God with our mind and serve Jesus with our hearts. My sincere hope is that my Insights video will help feed minds and inspire hearts to be the best Christian possible. No one is perfect, but the more we try to imitate Jesus, the closer we will come showing Him to others.
