How would you describe someone who says he is a Christian but who thinks and acts as if God is not immediately present? A professing Christian and a practicing atheist. I was one of those people.
It’s one thing to say that God is omnipresent. It’s another thing to think and act as if He is always in whatever room you are in. I would say that God was omnipresent, but never translated that thought into carrying around in my mind an awareness of His presence everywhere I went. I unconsciously assumed that the room I was in was without God – unless I was at church or praying. (Why is it, by the way, that families can fuss and fight in the car on the way to church but stop when they get to church? Do they think God is in the church but not in the car?)
People who forget God’s omnipresence are just as disadvantaged as people who deny it.
It’s quite possible, therefore, that most professing Christians today are practicing atheists. I hope you are not one of them.
If you are, just begin to practice the truth that you say you believe. That is, think and act as if Jesus Christ is everywhere you go. Then you will not just be a professing Christian, but a practicing one.
