Daily Word for Tuesday, July 14, 2015
The Bible says in Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.”
Take note of “do or say” in that scripture. It suggests that we need to be “show and tell” Christians or audio/visual Believers. We need to communicate and demonstrate the gift of Christ in our lives for unbelievers.
It is not a cliché to ask: How would Jesus handle this?
The Bible is clear about the “show and tell” life of the Believer. I Thessalonians 4:11-12 says, “Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. 12 Then people who are not believers will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others.”
Over the next 365 days, 231 Californians will die; 2.3 million Americans will die and over 54 million people worldwide will die. The Bible asks, “How will people know unless we tell them?”
God has given every Believer a heart to change the world but it starts with us changing ourselves, our homes, our communities, etc.
Pray this powerful but brief prayer with me: “Lord, please use me!”
Your action step: Make sure that you have at least one person in your life who hasn’t stepped across the line to a life in Christ.
Take the seven action steps you have discovered over the past week and that pray that God will use your partnership to reach one more for Christ in the near future..
Peace and blessings!
