The Chronicles of Biscuit - "No, I Just Play for Them"

Biscuit is a huge OU (University of Oklahoma) fan.  In fact, he has several OU shirts and even a jersey which he wears at least two or three times a week.  However, last night I noticed Biscuit had on an OSU (Oklahoma State University) jersey and also had his face painted with letters (notice in the picture that his forehead says "USO" because he did it in the mirror and so it was backwards...but he didn't know it! Also notice the dangling upper tooth that is just barely hanging on!).  The OSU jersey was a Christmas present from three years ago when he was an OSU fan.

Anyway, I said, "Biscuit, are you an OSU fan now, since you're all dressed up as an OSU foot ball player?"  He replied, "No, I just play for them."  In the make-believe football game he was getting ready to play, he was an OSU football player, but at heart he was still an OU fan.

It makes me wonder:  Does God look at us and say, "Are you really a fan of mine or do you just play like you are one?"  And how do we answer, "No, I just play like I am one." or "Yes, I am a fan of God!"?  What impression do we leave on our family?  What impression do we leave on our friends? As Christians, we must be totally devoted to God - not just "playing like" or "pretending".

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.  Revelation 3:15-16
