Have you looked into a mirror lately, not just any mirror but God's mirror?
If you take out the Bible and open it in front of you would your life be a reflection of it?
What would you see?
If we are professing to be Christians every person we come into contact with should see Jesus, not you! The Holy Bible should be the reflection they see in us, we should be the living, walking, talking Bible. Alot of people are not reading the word of God, I believe God intends for Christians to present the word to those people in our everyday lives. For instance, if we see one of our brothers or sisters in need, what will we do?
Think about it seriously? Especially if a Christian has the means to do something about it and all they say is I'll pray for you!
Alot of Christians have been saying what would Jesus do and yes we should ask the question but we should also trust God to lead us to act on the question.
When was the last time you went to spend time with someone sick or in the hospital and not only that, you prayed with them, read scriptures to them, laid hands on them and believed God would heal them?
When was the last time you saw someone hungry and you fed them, took them something to eat or gave them money to buy food?
When was the last time you went through a test or trial did you allow people to see Jesus in you while you were going through or did you put on your mask of frustration, doubt and stress?
When was the time instead of acting like the world in a hostile situation did you turn the other cheek and allow people to see Jesus or did you put your mask on and show them something else?
Where is the word of God in our lives, is our everyday life like a mirror to reflect the word of God, is it showing up or are we wearing a mask that's not like Christ?
I ask all Christians this question especially because it's Halloween the day when people put on masks; do you already have your mask on?
Christians are you wearing a mask? Or can people see Jesus!!!
Susan, these are good questions, and we do have the right as Christians, and the need, to put them out there. Jesus, Himself, did ask questions, and He asked them so others would think and consider their lives. We often can ask these questions because we have already asked them of ourselves. To attempt to list all your answers in an article could be be viewed as boasting by some. I think your questions are right on target. Thomas
This article is listed under Inspirational Poetry. I fail to see why it is listed that way as it doesn';t fit my understanding of poetry. I also think that the use of more commas would have been very helpful. The thought is excellent, however, and a question we all need to face.
Let's hear your answers FIRST.
Your answers to your questions will let us know what sort of soul we are in the company of; a compassionate family member or _______________. (fill in the blank)
Regardless of what others are or are not doing; Jesus asked the question one day: "What is that to you?, YOU follow Me."
Looking forward to YOUR answers!
