Talking with my friend this morning.
We were talking about how many people "like" other people's status.
It is great that you and I like it. But, it doesn't matter how much you and I like or agree with something that gets posted.
What truly matters is,
WE like it well enough, especially the Word of God, then we need to let it sink into our spirit man, then "apply it" in our heart and to our life!
It's then and only then that we will we see our life being different and that there has truly been a change. Others will see it as well!
When we are a new creation in Christ, we no longer act, talk, walk or do the same things we once did!!
Being a Christian isn't all about how many times we attend church...
It's about us being the church!
If we truly want to change we must see ourselves changed! We can only see ourselves clearly through the Word and the Light (Jesus) that shines in darkness.
To me it's like looking in a mirror in the dark, without the light there is and will be no reflection, you and I can't see the true image.
Turn on the Light of Christ and let the world see Jesus!
Let the Word of Christ dwell in you. Be a follower, and imitate Him.
Represent Him well because, people are watching those of us that say we are a Christian!
That HE might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27. That HE might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and "without" blemish.
