In a world where noise is coming from every direction, are we as Christians sharing our message?
“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand-shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 The Message
News is spread faster than ever before. The television news has up to date information every hour. There are a whole host of social medias out there. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to name a few. And although communication has evolved drastically throughout history, God’s amazing love has not changed. “God is not a secret to be kept.” Someone was faithful to each of us to witness and teach us. We can’t be afraid to do the same and share the truth in love. Let’s all challenge ourselves to open up to others and let His love flow through us freely to everyone we meet. “We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.” We have a story to tell of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Let us witness by being light and love in the world.
