Good News Thursday!!!
To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on We Hear You Calling by Chris Lawson
What sets us apart as a believer of Christ from anyone else who’s not a believer?
Is it our outward appearance?
Is it the way we dress?
Is it the way we look?
The way we carry ourselves or speak?
I’ve met a lot of people who physically appeared to be what was “perceived” or “equated” to what a follower of Christ should look like, only to have them open there mouth and destroy everything that Christ is.
God is Love! And because He is Love, He has more grace then we could ever imagine.
I grew up knowing God through the relationship my Dad and Mom had with Him and that was amazing; but then I had to come to a place where I had to establish my own relationship with God and get to know Him for myself.
I’ve accepted Christ into my life some years back and everyday God is revealing who He is to me.
And If I’m learning who I am in Christ, how can I possibly give someone else the map that will develop them for who they should and will be?
I can’t destroy them by telling them all the traditional externals I was taught as a child. Because I now know that doesn’t make me anymore saved than the next person.
The only thing I can do is give them the tools needed (The Word of God, LOVE, and Prayer) that will lead them to a place in Christ they’ve never imagined possible.
The Word of God says…..
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
LOVE is the key!
If we are to draw anyone we must present the love of God and allow God to draw them.
We can’t draw anyone or cause anyone to surrender by telling them to; we can only be the vessel that God uses to draw his children in the way He wishes.
Do you sometimes find it hard to just allow God to work on the heart of a friend or loved one without your interference? What makes it so hard?
We would love to hear your thoughts below in the comments section.
