WHAT ARE YOU PREACHING?
When people hear your name mentioned, what comes to their mind? ~ Is it your kindness, your politics, your style, your sense of humor, your temper...? ~ We hope it is our faith they remember, our Jesus that they see, but so often we are preaching something else. ~ Through our words (said and unsaid) and our actions (taken and avoided), we are all trumpeting a message. What's yours...? ~ And how does that contrast with Jesus? Ephesians 2:17 says, "He came and he preached peace..." ~ I love the picture this verse creates of the clear, concise message Jesus represented: Peace. Just peace. Available to every single person. ~ What is your life saying, without you even realizing it? ~ Take a moment to ask God to reveal this truth to you. ~ Don't like what you see? Join me, in my daily prayer: "Father, please open me and change me into a better reflection of you. I want your peace and love to shine brighter than my personality and preferences. Amen" ~
