07/03 – When the World Looks at You, What do they see?

Let’s start this morning by asking? Do you ALWAYS testify? Daily, our lives are being read as a book. What is it that people see or who does people see you as?

My hope is that they perceive you as a Christian, Christ-like. Our lives as a Christian is to be a living testimony, in and of the Christian life.

God’s blessings and favor are to be told; to our friend’s, family, co-workers, etc. We ought to be so grateful to our Heavenly Father for all He has done and is doing in our lives that we should always have a testimony to share with those in our life.

So many times in our busy lives, it’s easy to overlook what God does in our life. God expects our lives to be a living testimony, to (testify) to be a witness. Yes, to give evidence of all (both big and small things) He does within our lives.

I am so grateful of all God has done for me. First and foremost, starting with, drawing me to Him, allowing me to be born-again, to become His child.

I responded to the drawing of the Holy Spirit in my heart and believed God’s plan for redemption for me. He is available to ALL mankind, whom will believe by faith.

YES, I received and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and turned away from my old life. God gave me a brand-new heart, new desires, as I began to follow His Word (the Bible) and walked in His steps, my new life had begun. With that said, I became a Christian (Christ-like).

I am soooo grateful for this new life in Him. My heart is filled with a joy that is beyond describable. His blessings and favor follows the believer because of the love of the Father for His children.

As we can see from the following scriptures; Jesus tells us to share the goodness and healing that God has done for us.

(Let it be a testimony to all that hears; a living, caring God)

Matthew 8:1 – 4 (NLT) Large crowds followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him … “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. Then Jesus said to him, “Don’t tell anyone about this. Instead, go to the priest and let him examine you. Take along the offering required in the law of Moses for those who have been healed of leprosy. This will be a public testimony that you have been cleansed.”

Are YOU willing to be recruited? “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” Are you willing – to be a worker, a servant?

Matthew 9:37 – 38 (NLT) He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”

  • Who do YOU love the most?
  • Who comes FIRST in your life?
  • Who do YOU put FIRST in your life?
  • What do you put first in your life?

Loving the Lord Jesus and God your Father, will be shown by how you follow and obey His Word and commands.

  • Matthew 10:37 (NLT) “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine.
  • Matthew 22:37 (NLT) Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’
  • Deuteronomy 30:20 To choose life is to love the Lord your God, obey him, and stay close to him.

Yes, the Christian will be known by their fruit.

As always, love in Christ Jesus,
Paul Lundmark
