If we think our faith and our Christian walk is all about ourselves then we need to read John 20 v 31 and get a reality check!
The ultimate purpose of the Word is to point people to Jesus and to life; this should also be our aim too.
Our walk, who we are and what we do should make other people want to know more about Jesus.
Jesus came that people could have life and life in more abundance (John 10 v 10).
If we proclaim that we are followers of Jesus our walk should be bout showing Him and His goodness to others.
I’m not talking about preaching to people, I am saying that our whole life should be a ‘sermon’, showing people Jesus through our attitudes, words and actions.
Jesus was a man (and God of course) of love, mercy and compassion; can we say the same about ourselves?
If we are honest, we would probably say sometimes but maybe not enough.
However, what I have seen in my life and in the walk of others, is that as we know and love Jesus more these traits are displayed more and more.
So I am not suggesting we try and be more loving and compassionate, I am saying that as we understand more about Jesus through His Word we will display more of these aspects of character.
In this way we will point more people to Jesus!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that it is a signpost to Jesus”.
John 20 v 31….. But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name
