Clothed with Grace: Proof

Wednesday, April 15, 2015


"If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?" I heard this recently and I thought it was really thought provoking. It made me think about Peter, one of Jesus' disciples.  Jesus asked Peter who he believed Jesus was, and Peter responded, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God." Peter, the rock, was the man who Jesus wanted his church built upon. He was with Jesus throughout his whole ministry.  Still, even though Peter believed and Jesus trusted him, on the night of Jesus' capture Peter would deny he knew Jesus three times.

"If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?" When it came down to it, Peter denied Jesus. We do the same thing today. We do it with our unkind words towards others, we do with with our selfish actions, and we do it in the way we chose to spend out time.  This makes me think about this song my King & Country. Take a listen:


I want my life to be the proof of God's love here on earth. I don't want to be like Peter, denying who Jesus is when it really matters.  It can be difficult and awkward to always know what to say, and often times I feel like Baby on Dirty Dancing "I carried the watermelon." Hey, but at least I'm trying, at least I'm speaking. Our words and actions show the world evidence of who God is. If we have Jesus in our hearts that should influence what we do each day, and cause others to want to know more about who this God we serve really is.

I wore this outfit over the weekend. This sweater was the "one that got away." Then on a whim, I checked ebay and a new one in my size had just been listed. Yes! I decided to pair it with these  boyfriend jeans I bought recently at Old Navy. I sized down and they fit perfectly. : )

I've also been wearing my Kendra Scott necklace from my newest Rocksbox like crazy! It. Goes. With. Everything. I previewed my next box and there's another Kendra Scott necklace in it!

 If you're not familiar with Rocksbox it's a fun monthly jewelry service.  It normally cost $19 a month, but you get a $10 credit towards any purchases. You can also send the box back and forth as many times as you want each month. I'm really loving getting to try it out and you can try it free for a month too.
