IT IS TRUE
“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 KJV
Evangelist Charles Studd wrote the famous poem “Only One Life, T’will Soon Be Past.” It is true that we only have one life and only what we do for Christ will last. We can’t take our earthly possessions with us when we die but we can take our love and devotion to Jesus with us.
Is Jesus happy with the things we are doing? Are we leading others to accept Jesus as personal Saviour by our loving actions and words? We can tell people about Jesus and how wonderful He is but if they don’t see the difference Jesus makes in our heart and life, they aren’t going to want Jesus.
If we want to lead our children to accept Jesus as personal Saviour, they are going to have to see the difference Jesus made in our life. Do our children see the difference Jesus has made in our heart and life? May God help us to live our life in such a way that our children will want Jesus in their heart and life.
Are our works glorifying our Heavenly Father or are they hurting Him and bringing shame to Him? May God help us to point others to Jesus by our kind and loving actions and our encouraging words. If ever someone deserves to be happy, it is Jesus, the Saviour of the world. O how I love Jesus.
A teenage boy said to his parents “You go to church, teach Sunday school and sing in the choir but when you come home you criticize the pastor and the sermon. If this is what being a Christian is, I don’t want any part of it.” How that must have hurt Jesus and broke His heart. Let’s lead others to Jesus.
