Where Is Your Faith On Display?

Displays are awesome to have! I have a display of old cars at my house which I think is pretty cool and I also have a display of airplanes! There’s a big chance you have a display of some sort as well.

A display of your own race cars or airplanes. A display of art, a display of farming equipment, a display of pottery, a display of legos, a display of models that you’ve built, a display of trophies you’ve won in years past, or even a display of china in a glass cabinet.

We all like displays of things but I want to ask you this question:

Where is your faith on display?

One time I was talking with a woman about our faith being on display, I can’t remember where I was talking to her, it seems like it was either Hobby Lobby or Walmart… it doesn’t matter! 🙂

Anyway, in the conversation, we were having I remember her saying that having symbols of faith displayed in your home is one of the most important things a person who believes in Jesus can have and she mentioned she had a home full of faith decor.

As we kept talking, I remember her saying something about struggling with her personal faith and not sharing it with others. This got me thinking…

I’ve been in many homes where people have entire walls, even rooms dedicated to faith displays like scripture, statues of Jesus, or even large Bibles.

There’s another side to this… I’ve also met other people who I consider some of the most faith-filled people I know and they don’t have very much faith decor at all in their homes. Does that make them less faithful? I surely don’t think so.

But where is having faith more important? In our hearts and sharing it with others or on our walls?

Some of our walls have more faith than we do and it should be the opposite.

Please don’t hear me say I’m against Christian decor because I’m not. I think it’s awesome and it can also serve as an encouragement when we feel weak. Sometimes, we may actually need that faith that’s on our walls which is a great thing!

Jesus cares way more about the condition of our hearts than He does what’s on our walls. He wants your whole heart to be surrendered to Him. He wants you to trust Him with everything you’ve got and devote your life to Him. He wants to talk to you every single day and hear from you.

Knowing God’s word in your heart and being a beacon of light to others around the communities we live in is a far greater display of faith than anything else. Let’s hide God’s word deep in our hearts so that we have it wherever we go. Jesus desires more territory in our hearts than He does inventory on our walls.

I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You. (Psalm 119:11)

There should be more faith in our hearts than on our walls.


When you go out into the community whether it’s at work or at a school it doesn’t matter where, do others see you as a beacon of light? Can they see your faith? Does someone have to come into your home and see the decor to know you have faith? Do you talk about Jesus to others and do you talk to Jesus alone?

Knowing Jesus personally in our hearts, giving more territory to Him, and then showing our faith to others is how Jesus wants to move in our lives.

  • When was the last time you spent time with Jesus?
  • What does it look like for you to take your faith wherever you go? (For example, are you displaying love, kindness, peace, patience, gentleness, and joy)
