Topic: Be the Christ the World is in Search Of [04/09/16]
Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men. 2 Corinthians 3:2. Read: 2 Cor 5:17-20
A Pastor said that, everywhere you are as a Christian, people should begin to call you Pastor even when they know vividly you don't have a Church. Your attitude should make them see what you cannot see in you - Christ Jesus. The world is in search of our Saviour Jesus Christ, but they want to see Him through those that profess to know Him first before they can be convinced to follow Him. Paul told the brethren at Corinth that they're the epistle that men read, therefore, they must mind the way they live their lives not to destroy the good works they've done. Every of your doing must point the world to Jesus Christ, you must be a sign post of Jesus to the world.
During the earthly ministry of Christ Jesus, God was in Him reconciling the world back to Himself, and when Jesus finished His work and He ascended to His Father, He left us with gifts and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. He made us an ambassador of heaven to the earth to defend the course of heaven on earth. You must live according to the principles of heaven, old things must pass away in your life and all things renewed. Can men see Jesus in you? Or would they reject Jesus because of you?
* Father, from today, let me live a life that will reconcile men to You in Jesus Name
