It's A Big Responsibility
People May Know God By Our Love
abundant life Christ instills in us compels action toward our fellow man.
Our creative interaction with others demonstrates the love of God.
People cannot see God, for He is spirit. The Followers of Christ are God's agents of love – His hands and feet in the world. We being flesh, which is inspired by the Spirit, are useable representatives of God. This is His amazing plan.
Others may see God through our lives. We demonstrate his love (or we do not) by our words and our actions. Some accept Christ then fall asleep, or fall back under the law, or they are distracted by the deceitfulness of riches. They are useless to the work of God.
But those who accept the wonderful gift of salvation and the accompanying gift of the Holy Spirit can become the agent's of God's love.
Daily, by faith, they acknowledge dependence
on the Spirit within to alert them to the works of God.
Lord, today position me to do your works for YOUR GLORY.
