Are we truly a follower of Jesus if we keep His good news to ourselves? How about all our friends and family who don’t know Him or aren’t living for Jesus. Could you see any of your loved ones be condemned to hell for eternity? How awful would it be if they could have been saved if you just shared the gospel of Jesus with them. There will either be tears of joy for a person who died for Christ or tears of sorrow because we didn’t tell the person about the Lord in time. Pray over your family and friends that don’t know Jesus or have lost their way. Ask the Lord to help you share the gospel with them before it is too late. Trust in God and He will give you boldness to speak with people. Let the Lord use you to do His will among men. He has great ambitions for your life and could use you to get His message out to the lost. You may not know the words to say but the more You seek the Lord the more you will be given words to speak. Our words don’t have the power to save but the Holy Spirit alone. Look to God for answers and He will speak wisdom to your mind. The Lord is all knowing and will lead you to those ready to hear His gospel message. Go out this day and raise up the Name of Jesus to this fallen world. If you know anyone that is living in the world speak to them about Jesus. If you know anyone that is living under false teachings speak the truth of God to them.
We are God’s servants on earth. He has made us a new creation and breathed on us the Holy Spirit. We have been taken from the darkness and into the light of Christ. The light of Jesus is able to shine through us. His light cannot be hid among the servants of God. When we live for Him and obey His counsel than He is one with us. To all those that love God and walk in His ways, His goodness is given openly with others. Don’t be afraid, for the love that shines through your life will touch many people. As you go out to share the truths of the gospel you will give light to all those around you. Follow the Lord and “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Share the good news and many lives will be saved. God will be with you to bear you up. He will give you boldness as you lift up His Name to the world. Thank You Lord for the Holy Spirit in my life. It opens up my life to greater opportunities to serve You. Use my life to shine Your light all my days. Help others to see Your message of hope. Speak through me that it will be Your words and not mine. Help me to share Your gospel with love. It breaks my heart to see anyone die without Your love in their life. For this I am honored to declare Your gospel to family, friends and anyone that will listen. I will lift You up to all those around me. I love You.
Matthew 5:14-16 (KJV)
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
