A good thing to live by

June 21, 2008

This is a great verse to think about “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16. Serving, and spreading God’s name is a great and probably the best way to lead others to Christ.
I want to remind you of some good ways to do so:

  • Live by the fruits of the spirit, and demonstrate them in any way you can, people see that something different. God can use alot more when your demostrating good character. When you demostrate the fruits of the spirit it fills, God’s spirit goes inside of you, and God can work with you. If you have an unpure heart and are filled with the “seven deadly sins” etc. You cant be a light for Jesus, its impossible! heres a reminder of the fruits of the spirit: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
  • I bring God or Jesus’ name up in conversation. Doing that shows your faith and your love of God. Thats a challenge for me, but its the right thing to do. A couple days ago i went to the doctor and i just told her about my intersests, and one of them was serving and sharing Jesus, and she just stood there and was like “wow” good for you Abby. I think she was surprised that some one like me would even want too, when its so easy to slide right in with every one else. Heres a good verse to remeber, For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord. 2 timothy 1:7,8 Just try and spread Jesus’ name, there are great rewards, and YOU have the strength to do it!
