NASCAR and the Christian

Description

As followers of Christ, the way we live our lives, handle the pressure of daily living, and focus on our priorities should be SIGNIFICANTLY different from our non-believing friends.

I’m a casual NASCAR fan. I keep up with who’s winning and losing, but I’ll rarely sit down and watch an entire race. I’ll just keep up with it as I channel-check throughout the day.

Did you know that every winning car is inspected?

A lot of times, the inspectors will find rule violations—minute adjustments in weight, height, angles of the spoiler—all that will have given the driver a significant edge in the race.

You know what they say in racing, “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.”

So what does all of this have to do with the Christian life?

Think about this. Whenever you see one particular car SIGNIFICANTLY better than every other car, everyone assumes there’s a little something extra under the hood.

As followers of Christ, the way we live our lives, handle the pressure of daily living, and focus on our priorities should be SIGNIFICANTLY different from our non-believing friends.

This will invite questions and conversations. From these conversations come our best opportunities for evangelism.

Remember, most people don’t believe the gospel because they can’t see where it makes any real difference.

When our friends can see a real difference, however, we’ll have the chance to turn their doubt to faith.
