A. What are your followers seeing?
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Let your light shine, let your light shine shine shine. Listen, Jesus Christ has touched down in your life and made you a new creature, old things have passed away and new things have come. Let people know, let people see your good works. Galatians 6:9 tells us not to grow weary in doing good. Do good because of your love for Jesus Christ and make sure you walk in a manner worthy of the calling He has placed on your life. We must be purposeful and diligent to be strong in the Lord and allow His strength to flow through us.
B. Where are you followers walking?
John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
First and foremost do you have any followers? Truly, do you have individuals that would follow you through the battles and struggles of life? Do you have individuals that will lock arms with you and will listen to you? Do you have individuals that are committed to you and believe you to be a man or woman of God? Do they depend on you for advice, guidance, a shoulder to cry on, an encouraging word in a discouraging circumstance, a disciplined word when necessary, but always a loving hand? Well where are they walking? Where they walk indicates your leadership. Are they walking close to God, does their life reflect a strong commitment to Jesus Christ, are they walking Christ-like?
Today, you find yourself reading this blog for many different reasons; however, you must ask yourself, first, “am I a Christian?” Then you must ask yourself, “do I need a warning label?” If your the answer to the first question is no, then today is your day of salvation. You must make a decision for Jesus Christ today! We are not promised tomorrow and your eternity is at stake. If your answer is yes, I am a child of God, but I need a warning label because of my complaining, my disputing or any of the many scriptures listed the last three days that prevents you from becoming blameless, harmless, and without fault, then you must go to work. Today is the day that Jesus ignites the fire that produces the light in you. A light that will shine in this world pointing others to Christ; however, you have to make a decision. You have to say yes to His will and no to your own. Will you surrender to Him today?
