Into The Market Place

One of the things that I picked up on at the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference back in May, is how the Lord is taking His people into the market place, out of the four walls of the church, to where the people are, who need to see the living word manifested in the world.
At the conference, there where a number of people there, who you sensed the reality of that relationship with the Lord! You did not have to ask them, you just knew, their life reflected it, without a word being spoken.
Again, a few weeks ago, while at Starbucks, there were three men, sitting at one of the tables, studying, fellowshipping and letting their light shine, not drawing attention to themselves, but simply being themselves, allowing the light of Christ to shine forth.
One of the things that I noticed, was those that came in, passing their table, took notice of them, I saw smiles on their faces and noticed how they were listening. Most of you know that when your in Starbucks, Cocoa Bean or any other place, often times, we hear other conversations, though we try not too
As a matter of fact, that is how I came to be part of a group of men, two years ago, when I first visited Starbucks here in Kennesaw. It has had a life changing impact on my life and something that I look forward to each Saturday morning.
Our lives, effects others, whether we know it or not, because it is not what we say, rather more often, it is what our life reflects. A seed is planted in ways we may not really realize, because someone see’s or senses something different about us.
The light that shines forth, may plant a seed of hunger, of wonder, making them wanting to know what is it that is different, what gives us the peace, that rest that they sense? We may plant the seed, another may water it and someone else, will reap the harvest, of being able to share with that person, what it is that is different, what gives us hope and a purpose.
I can hear in my heart, the Father saying, Just let the light shine, let my son be seen in you. That my love, my heart, my compassion can be seen through you, that it will reach out and drawn others to the light of my presence in you and you can share that which have I given you, new life, new beginnings in my Son.
Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples–when they see the love you have for each other. (John 13:34-35 - The Message)
How uncomplicated is our Lord. The greatest commandment that we have been given is that we love even as He loved us, to forgive as He has forgiven, to live as He lived, to live in the newness of life.
To walk daily afresh with Him. Side by side, leaning on His shoulder and saying, Yes Lord, this day, I walk with you into life, into the market place and I will let your light shine!
