Ephesians 5:1 “Therefore be imitators of GOD, as beloved children!”
Serve the LORD with gladness, not Despair…running quickly in HIS footprints without Fear.
Ignore the urge to grieve for lengthy times and cast off those chains which claim to bind you there.
So examine very closely whose reflection they will see for all who watch you look for JESUS in your steps and how you speak!
Then! Is it you or just the LORD? What answer shall be given…for the words you share will pale next to how they find you living!
As HIServant holding the Bible’s mirror reminding me of HOW HE lived matched what HE said,
Devotional: 1 John 2:6 “Whoever says they abide in HIM ought to walk in the same way in which HE walked.”
1 Peter 2:21 “For to this you have been called, because CHRIST also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in HIS steps.”
It’s our union of Faith and Action which creates the such hopeful views for others.
For if just one of these halves is done, the absence of the other reflecting JESUS will confuse souls.
Colossians 1:27 “To them GOD chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is CHRIST in you, the hope of Glory!”
So by joyously serving relentlessly in tandem with speaking the same, the Lost see the Light of CHRIST in you, their hope of Glory — too!
Amen and amen!
