What if we lived out each day with Christ?
What if we allowed Christ to shine through all we did each day? From stepping foot out of bed, to making breakfast, to teaching, to going to the store, to cleaning, to going to our work place, from driving on the highway, to each little detail of our day, do you realize just what a difference we would make? With one change of our attitude, with allowing Christ to shine through us, we could touch the world beginning with one person, ourselves. If we can begin with us, let our eyes light up to all Christ has and is doing we can spread the glory of His life to others. If we choose to open our arms to the hurting, the hungry, and the angry we can change our lives along with theirs by letting Christ live through us. He is alive and living in us. Why would we want to keep that to ourselves? When we are on fire for Christ we want to tell the world, we want to share all about God. Before we begin to touch others, we first must look at ourselves and see if we are a good witness to those around us. If we are not living what we believe how can we lead others to Christ. We are in a battle here to reach the world for Christ. We have satan and evil sins trying to stand in our way,but with the strength of Christ we can speak loud and clear. God can change others if we open our hearts, life and time to Him. For all the blessings we receive, let us reach out and bless others in the same manner. In order for Christ to look good on us, we have to allow Him to shine through all we do. Think of each person we come in contact with, think of the changes we can make with just one. If we are surrendering to God, we must surrender all we have, and our life becomes His, and He can live through us touching all who are in our paths. No one comes in our path for no reason. Each and every person is there for a reason, and if we are in touch with Christ He will show us how to move and when to move. This world will never be perfect until heaven, but while we are here we must step out, we must reach out, and we must make an impact on those who are here with us. A world without Christ is lost. A world with Christ is full and alive in Him. Dig deep and find our life with Christ so we too can share with others all He has done for us. We all know different people, we all have different gifts and we can all reach many, we can touch those who are right in front of us. We are all missionaries who walk with Christ. For we can minister to all those we know, and all those who walk into our path. For we may learn and be blessed by them also. God instilled in us all we need to reach the world, so may we stop reaching for things for us, and reach out to others for God..."And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20
