My prayer for you for today is that you will highlight Jesus in your way of life, in Jesus name.
1 Thessalonians 1:5
For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said was true. And you know of our concern for you from the way we lived when we were with you.
Live. I often talk about the way we live our lives and how we should be ambassadors for Jesus wherever we are. I think when you suddenly find yourself on God’s side and you realize how wrong your life has been it is sometimes embarrassing. This to me must be the hardest mind shift that you should make and that is to put the past behind you and to focus on what lies ahead. It is so easy to fall back into old habits when you feel unworthy of God’s love. I think we miss so many lives by not noticing the need because we live a life not close to God. It all starts with you, you have to forgive, forget and ask for forgiveness to free you from your past so that you can have a complete new beginning. It is in this freedom that we can commit anew to God and align our lives to His plan. This new direction will steer you towards people and this is where this scripture is so important today - And you know of our concern for you from the way we lived when we were with you.
To truly love is to give up something for someone. Jesus set the ultimate example by giving up His life for everyone. This means that the love of God for each one should be reflected in the way we live our lives and because we want all to know Jesus we should live in such a way that Jesus will be visible in us. Out of love and concern for other we should live completely committed to Jesus. To show Him to the world and to bring His light into the dark and to set free those that are bound by the enemy.
My dear friend let the Holy Spirit give you the strength to show the light to the world and in that you will become a changer – a life changer. Set your sights on Jesus and keep aligning yourself to Him each day, because the closer we get to Him the clearer He will be. I must set the example by living a life committed to God.
Have an awesome living day!
