Daily Devotional - 4th September, 2012 - An Advertisement for Christianity


Daily Devotional – 4th September, 2012

People follow who you are, not what you say. If you are a follower of Jesus, then understand, you are the advertisement for Christianity. You represent Christ in this world. When people see you, hopefully they see a glimpse of who Christ is. Have a look at these words from the Message (2 Corinthians 6:4-10):

‘People are watching us as we stay at our post, alertly, unswervingly . . . in hard times, tough times, bad times; when we're beaten up, jailed, and mobbed; working hard, working late, working without eating; with pure heart, clear head, steady hand; in gentleness, holiness, and honest love; when we're telling the truth, and when God's showing his power; when we're doing our best setting things right; when we're praised, and when we're blamed; slandered, and honored; true to our word, though distrusted; ignored by the world, but recognized by God; terrifically alive, though rumored to be dead; beaten within an inch of our lives, but refusing to die; immersed in tears, yet always filled with deep joy; living on handouts, yet enriching many; having nothing, having it all.’
Surely the greatest testament to a faithful ‘Jesus-life’ is when unbelievers can look at you and see the nature of God and for it to be so attractive, that they want what you have!

Ponder: When people look at your life, with all your ups and downs and struggles and joys, do they see Christ? Will they see Christ?

Bible: 2 Corinthians 6:4-10
