Truthful Tuesday: Show and Tell

February 24, 2016

ShowandTell

Inspirational Thought of the Day:

Sharing Christ is not a once and done proposition; living for Christ is to demonstrate and testify to our sphere of influence.

Scriptures:

Matthew 8:4

Then Jesus said to him, “See that you do not speak to anyone, but go, show yourself to a priest, and bring the offering that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Mark.16:15

“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel.”

Acts 1:8

“Ye shall be witnesses…unto uttermost part of earth”

A popular saying today is to “share the Gospel; use words if necessary”.  The verse in Matthew would seem to agree with that thought, but taking all verses together, we get a more complete picture of how we are to share the hope we have with others.

Sometimes words are needed, other times it might be a meal, a card, or sharing a testimony.  The Holy Spirit leads us into what each person needs.

Showing Christ’s love is just as important as telling others His truth.  One without the other is not a complete picture.  Good works are filthy rags, yet faith without works is dead.  The balance is found in the motivation for both.

If I am trying to earn favor by good works, the fruit born will bring me glory.  But seeking to serve others what they need glorified God.

It is a privilege to share with others what God has done for us.  In that moment, we are fulfilling what we were made to do.  Our testimony is really Christ in us, portrayed for people to understand and know Him more.

Lord, thank You for each testimony you have given to us.  May we glorify You in every aspect of our lives.
