Are you "real?"
When the world suggests that we be "real," they actually mean, "do/say whatever you want, d*** the consequences."
As Christians we need to be a different kind of real.
We should not be concerned with getting out all that's inside us, but really loving others, really reaching out.
We live in a real world, with real people, who are really possibly going to spend a real eternity in a real place called Hell.
How will they hear the truth if we won't speak it?
Why would they listen to us if we won't love them?
Real Christianity hurts.
Our hearts break when those we love reject what we are trying to say to them.
But that shouldn't stop us from being real.
Only real people will be able to impact this really evil time for Christ.
