Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
Alright, Christmas is over and we celebrated the birth of Jesus. Now Easter has come and gone….now what? Do we just pine away at life until Christmas rolls around again so that we can start all over? It seems as if perhaps we just set our Christian lifestyle aside for a little while when there is no “religious holidays” to contend with. We just live our daily lives and pay no attention that we should be celebrating the life and death of Jesus every morning when we awaken from our slumber.
Whether it is the season to be giving or the one of reverence for what God allowed to happen to His son so that we may have eternal life, we should be shedding some light on what it’s really like to be a Christian. We should be living daily as an example of what God really did for us by giving us His Only Son. We should be kind and loving, giving and grateful, but most of all we should be sharing the Good News no matter where we go…..EVERYWHERE.
Now I am not talking about becoming Bible Thumpers…..I just mean being who we were meant to be in Christ. Doesn’t this mean preaching every place you enter? Do you mean I have to quote Bible verse after Bible verse AFTER Bible verse all the time? Does it mean you won’t ever sin again? Nope, it just means you have to share the Good News of Jesus with those you come in contact with. Sometimes this just means praying for a certain person who does not know the love of God and is closed off to it.
Being a Christian does not mean you have to to walk up to each person you meet and ask them if they know Jesus or tell them that they are going to hell if they don’t believe. Many of the conversations I have had about Jesus have come about because I started a simple, normal conversation with someone. We talk about one thing which leads to another and pretty soon I can’t help share something about what Jesus has done in my life. It really is a simple thing to do.
I encourage each of us to press into God and allow Him to use us in tremendous and creative ways to spread His Gospel story to those who have yet to hear it. If we just share our testimonies with those we encounter, God will take care of the rest. We have two commands from Jesus in this current hour, love one another and spread the Good News to everyone. Let’s go be fishers of men and shed some of His Light so that all might be saved.
