When I was in the hospital one of my roommates insisted on asking me questions about God.  I had spoken very little about my faith, just general comments like many people make but she saw something more in me....which got me wondering how much of Christ would others observe in us if we didn't rely on telling them He was there.

I would hope that others would observe Christ in me. I try to show kindness and compassion to other people that I meet and talk to. That is what I see in people even if we don't have a conversation about it. I can tell by their actions, the way they treat me and what they say.

Then there are some people who claim to be Christian but their words and actions prove otherwise. One woman said to me, you must not be living right to have so many problems. She must not read the same bible that I do because there were many people in the bible who had problems even extremely severe ones. It's like the accuser is speaking through them with the goal to cause doubt in one's faith and to lose hope, to feel rejected by God, to feel unloved by God, to feel that God has forgotten them and is not with them and has abandoned them. That's not the way to show Christ to someone.
