You Can Tell A Christian...but not much

Two youth returned to church after about a year away. One change was that their interesting hair styles were now buzz cuts. I found out another change. Part of the reason they have been away was time at Army boot camp. They both had joined the service!

Do you wish there was an easily visible way to gauge someone's Christianity, patriotism, danger to you? In poker, one looks for a "tell" in other players. A "tell" is a visual cue that reveals how good or bad the player's thinks his or her cards are. What is a "tell" for Christian?

Many quick and easy Christian tells have been promoted, you get current lists many places and historical lists in a few places. The problem is the various lists don't match, some items even contradict one another.Maybe our youth can give us a clue for a good tell. When someone enters the service, of their nation or their savior, it involves sacrifice.

Hope someone can tell you're a Christian today, without you using words to tell them. If you're not a Christian, I hope what you see in the loving way we play with others reveals how good a hand we Christians have.

Great Love Shown in Sacrifice

No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.
- John 15:13
