All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players
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
