How Can We Be Silent?

 We live in a day and age were we are told to shut up when it comes to what we believe. We are told that we might “disturb” people or make them feel “uncomfortable”. And what do most Christians do? Most listen to them. Which is wrong. When we have Christ in us we should be shouting him praises from the roof tops! We shouldn’t be ashamed of the fire that is inside of us! If we have been saved from death and been rescued by Jesus’ death on the cross we should be proud of it. The only thing we are to boast in is the cross. I want to share some song lyrics with you that I love on this topic.

 “Tell me who’d have thought that we would be so controversial
And stand against the normal
Are we too outspoken, loud, and messing up the comfortable?
Well we’ve been messed up also
But how can we be silent
When a fire burns inside us?”

-Barlowgirl, Million voices

“What will people think when they hear that I’m a Jesus freak? What will people do when they find out it’s true? I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there ain’t no denying the truth.” -DC Talk, Jesus Freak

Stand up, stand up, for what you believe in. Believe in God, he’s the one to back up. He’ll stand with you, He’ll stand with you. – Rad, Shac, and Benny, Veggie tales

“If we don’t speak, who will?
If we don’t fight, we’re still
Stuck without a voice and we are tired of being silenced
Look out you will find out
That here I am so far from then so
I take my chances
I don’t live for you
I’ll say what I have to
I don’t care I don’t care
Fears are what I lose
We are set apart
We’ve been chosen now
We are children of God
So what holds us back
What’s holding us back” _Barlowgirl, Take My Chances

“Jesus, Jesus how Your name offends us
Why are we so scared to tell this world You’ve saved us
When all of the hope of the world’s in Your name
Why are we so scared to say
Oh Jesus” Barlowgirl, Keep Quiet

“They tell us to shut up, they tell us to fall sleep, so we listen to them, we don’t even make a peep. I’m tired of staying silent, I am tired of being asleep, we are become part of this world nothing sets us apart from the rest.   Wake up wake up stand up for what you believe, you so called children of the king do something. We have forgotten how to fight, forgotten how to breath.” _Olivia, Wake Up

“Shout it from the roof tops give it all I got. Shout it from the roof tops so you can take your best shot.” Tobymac, Yours

I’m not ashamed to let you know I want this light in me to show. I’m not ashamed to speak the name of Jesus Christ. What are we sneaking around for? Who we trying to please? Shrugging off sin, apologizing like we’re spreading some kind of disease. I’m saying “NO WAY. NO WAY.” _ Newsboys, I’m Not Ashamed

I know that was a lot, but there are so many songs that I love on this topic. This is a very serious topic. Jesus said that if we deny him he will also deny us. (Matthew 10:33) I hope this gave some of you encouragement! If anybody has anything to add to this, feel free!

In Christ, Olivia <><
