I believe this just might be the most important thing about being a follower of Jesus Christ. As Christians, I’m not sure we are of any benefit without an honest faith in God and honesty within ourselves. We can often define and judge and be defined and judged by our own sincerity.
Was I being called to be a stand-up preacher? Was I being called to come up with funny material each Sunday to entertain those that came to worship God?
Or was I being called to put my comedy past aside? Was I being called to forget this part of my life and trade it in for something quite serious?
There was no need to label anything, only a need to be myself. To be organic. If I felt serious, be serious. If I felt humorous, be humorous. What’s most important is to be in God’s presence.
