Time for a Great Commercial (nothing hidden!)

Don’t you hate it when you find out about hidden fees, the small print, warranties that don’t cover exactly what you needed covered?  Here’s a great commercial from Ally Bank:

It makes me wonder — Do we hide aspects of the Christian faith from those we are trying to win to Jesus?

Here are five questions that occur to me that might be areas that we HIDE from unbelievers:

  1.  We might not make it clear that trusting Jesus as Savior means giving up one’s efforts to save oneself.

  2.  We might hide the fact — or fail to model it ourselves — that we are now no longer our own authority.  The Bible, the Word of God, is our final authority.

  3.  We might not emphasize enough that we are now SLAVES of Christ — and we are to live to do His bidding!

  4.  We might fail to explain that this fallen world is not our home.  We look forward to the New Heavens and Earth.

  5.  We might cover over the fact that we are the aroma of Christ to those who believe, but the stench of death to those who don’t (2 Cor. 2:14-17)!

    Your thoughts?
