A challenge for each Christian:
Let Jesus’ love shine through
In every word you think or say,
And everything you do.
May Jesus be so real in you,
As you live out His grace,
That it’ll be His smile they see
When looking at your face.
And as you reach to give a hug,
May it be God’s own hands
That reach through yours to touch a heart
So they will understand
That Jesus loves them, and that He’s
The One you’re living for.
Let them see just how real God is,
And leave them wanting more.
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light…
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine!
Keep open house; be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God,
this generous Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 MSG
