Diamonds in the Rough...

Many individuals have, like uncut diamonds, shining qualities beneath a rough exterior.-Juvenal

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

I am glad the Lord is working on me but am I working to be like Him? I hear that children’s song, “He’s still working on me, to make me what I ought to be….” But am I working against the Lord? Yes, God gives second, third, and so on chances but if we are His Children we need to be doing our best to be what we claim our name to be- Christian, Christ like or little Christ.

If you were on trial today would there be enough evidence to convict you of being a Christian? Are you reading His Word? Are you meditating upon it? Are you praying? Are you telling others what Jesus did for you? Are you going to church? Are you attending Sunday School? Yes, you’re right you don’t have to do any of these things to become a Christian but as one I believe you should have a desire to do them!
