Many people don’t like algebra or the fact that if a=b and b=c than c=a. Let’s turn that into a spiritual formula. If Jesus is the light of the world and He is in you than you are the light of the world! What did Jesus say in His Sermon on the Mount? “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in Heaven.” First impressions are generally lasting impressions. What impressions of Jesus do you make on people? Do you turn them off with holy self righteousness or turn them on with loving kindness? To quote Pastor Curt, “We are the ears, the hands, and the voice of Christ.” Are we listening to the needs and fears and doubts of others or over talking them with religiosity? Do we physically help with their needs and problems? Do we speak in truth and love? It’s a heavy responsibility being a Christian. You are an ambassador to an eternal kingdom and your tact or lack thereof may turn some people away from ever wanting to become a part of it! Be proud of Whom you represent, His church, His people, but think about your delivery, how you are actually portraying Jesus to others, then get your light out from under the basket, put it up on a hillside, and let it shine to be seen by men!
