You May Be The Only One They See!

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players
William Shakespeare
When we step out of our door each day we are stepping onto a stage of sorts. Out in the public there is no where to hide and like it or not, we are being watched! As Christians we have a responsibility to be a witness for Jesus and the Good News.
Paul said it best when he stated that  “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, recognized and read by everyone.”
We may be the only copy of Gods Word that some may ever read. They may very well judge all “Christians” by our actions. The Devil is called the accuser of the brethren which means he is out there just waiting for us to trip up so he can point it out to everyone. “They SAY that they are Christian but did you see what they just did?”
Our witness is all we have. Even though we know that we are not perfect. Christ is doing a great work in us for sure but we are not yet there. Others in the world can have the impression that we think we are perfect, or at least better then them. This gives opportunity to the Devil to come in an point out our imperfection. Add to that those who behave totally contradictory to what the Word says and we have daunting task ahead of us to effectively spread the Good News of Jesus.

So, go ahead and step out onto that stage and let your light shine!
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

    We know that when God talks about perfection, He means perfection in Love, (see below) not worldly fleshy perfection, which is the same as fleshy love, always changing, no commitment, if it feels good do it or just rubbish it and walk away, regardless of who gets hurt.

    We need to remember we are not only covered by Jesus righteousness, we also walk as He walks when we are perfected which is in Love, as confirmed in the Scripture below , God tells us and Paul too that perfection is what we are to aim for by putting our flesh to death.

    1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto Perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

    Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, where to we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be Perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    Christian Love and blessings from us both – Anne .
