“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
Showing God’s love doesn’t mean running the scriptures up into people’s minds and hearts in a forceful way though, either. You can show them the goodness of Christ and the example of Christ, through your words and your actions. Be willing to cook a meal for someone who just lost a loved one, take the time to listen to anybody who needs someone to talk to. Tell someone that you love them and that you’re praying for them. Be kind to unkind people. Feed the poor, and the homeless. Love without expecting anything in return. Turn away when people rebuke you. Turn away when someone wants to start a fight with you to avoid even more trouble. Be able to speak calmly even when you may be feeling angry. Do something nice and unexpected for others without expecting a reward for it. Do it because God put it on your heart to do it. Mathew 25:40 says, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ That’s exactly what Jesus did while He was here on Earth. Who better to imitate than Jesus?
Be the person who oozes faith so passionately that people want to get to know Christ and how He does His work in you and through you. Show them who Jesus is by reading some of your favorite verses in the Bible and showing them His word. Invite people to Bible study and church, and see if they show up. Keep spreading the word of His Kingdom to others. Be the person that some people may actually call, “the Jesus freak”, and be proud of that title. Live your life for Him, even when people tear you down for it.
Be the light that shines wherever you are. Whether it is at school, college or in your workplace or even at home. Be the person that helps others without expecting anything in return. Let your legacy be that you love Christ and that you are His beloved child. Invite others to His Kingdom of love. Let your legacy be for the fulfillment of His purposes in your life and for His Kingdom.
