Show Your Colors

americavetsThe Texas flag is composed of a blue stripe for loyalty, a white stripe for purity, a red stripe for bravery, and a lone star for unity.  It flies at the same height as the U.S. flag in Washington, D.C.  When Texas was engaged in the cause for her independence, Texans were encouraged to “show your colors” as a symbol of allegiance and determination.

For the believer, the Bible teaches us to always show our colors, allegiance to the cause of Jesus Christ.  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” (Romans 1:16)
