This morning, I sat down to read a Daily Bible Passage email that I received. The featured “Final Thought” really caught and warmed my heart…”Make it your only expectation to magnify Christ wherever you are and whoever you are with.”
As Christians, every single moment of our lives should be a testimony to the Glory of God.
That is an overwhelming thought, isn’t it? The problem is, we are human, and will fall short. We must not lose heart, for those are the moments that Jesus uses in our lives to help us on our spiritual walk, for all things work toward good for those that love Him. When we love the Lord, open our hearts to the Holy Spirit, and strive to align ourselves with Him, He will work for us and through us in all circumstances.
A beautiful moment of testimony was shown to my husband and me this morning. We stopped on our way to work for our morning coffee, and witnessed a Jesus love moment.
An older man who was using a cane, and a little unsteady on his feet, slowly got out of his car and looked at the icy ground. As he was assessing the situation, a young, strong, somewhat scraggly looking construction worker bee-lined over to him, and very slowly and patiently helped him into the restaurant.
That seemingly small act of kindness was a testimony of God’s love and glory.
Have you witnessed any of these moments lately? When you do, treasure and ponder them in your heart, and don’t forget to share! We all need to hear of the good things that are happening around us daily, for Jesus is in our midst every single day.
Praise to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for all the opportunities we are given every day…no matter how small they may seem…to love as Jesus loves, and to glorify our Father in Heaven!
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
