Famous Faith

In the introduction of his letter to the Christians in Rome, Paul tells them that their faith is "being reported all over the world." In other words, their faith is so strong and obvious that it is being discussed and held in high regard around the entire globe. Their faith is famous. 

Is our faith famous? Are we living a life of such abandonment and obedience to Christ that people are talking about it on the other side of the world? Ok, does that seem like a stretch. How about across the street? Let's be men and women who put our faith into action in the good times and the bad times. Let's be the people of God who really live it out. Let's be the real deal and lift up the name of Christ in such a way that our faith becomes famous. Not for our glory, but for the glory of the Famous One - Christ Jesus.
