You are being watched...
Everyday someone is looking at you to see how you will handle any given situation that comes your way.
Think before you act...
Your kids are watching, your husband/wife is watching, your best friend and the people at work are all watching you even without you knowing, they are all wondering just how you are going to react.
We all want to be the perfect person in everyone's eyes, but we know that we are not.
Jesus is said to be perfect in everyway without blemish. And even though He has scars it doesn't mean that he is not perfect. His scars are the perfect sign of his love for us. He didn't have to suffer the painful torcher and death that he did. He did it because he loves us. Even though His Father told him that he had to die. It was still Jesus's choice to die. Yes he knew that he would rise again from death. This doesn't mean that he took the easy way, He felt the pain, he cried out to his father, not for help but rather for him to forgive his accusers.
Jesus's death and resurrection is a sign for everyone that there is HOPE in our crazy lives.
Not saying that your life will be perfect after you come to know him in a personal way, But rather you will have him by your side the rest of your life in your daily walk. Tough times will still come and you will still feel the pain that "life" brings and you will even experience death through others and eventually yourself. But knowing Jesus he will bring comfort to and others around you.
As a followers of Jesus we all look to him for guidance, knowledge and wisdom on how to live our lives.
Now with all that said, what about all the people that don't know Jesus, they might have heard about him and they might even know people that say that they know/follow Jesus. What if the people that they have seen in the past say they are "Christians" but they live their lives like everyone else.
So if that were the case, then why would anyone want to become a Christian?
People are watching us to see if we are going to cuss, spread rumors, go out and act worldly etc...
When someone looks at you, do they see the light of Jesus?
You say that you know him and that you have his love in you, are you sharing His love?
If you say that you are sharing the light, then are the windows of your life covered by curtains of shame, are the blinds only part way open, does your windows frosted or are they "Stained Glass" from either your past or current sins?
Jesus Loves us all no matter what we have done or what we are doing, He asks that we share his love with the world.
Be the person that people see Jesus in.
If you say that you are a Christian, than act like one, yes you will be different, yes you will stand out, yes some people will feel threatened and yes there will be some that don't like you.
We can't please everyone, and if someone doesn't like the "new you" because Jesus lives in you, please don't feel that you need to change for them if they are a "true" friend then they will accept who you are.
Share the love with actions and everyday life, don't force feed them because it will cause them to choke and push away from you.
There is light in the darkness, but the only way there can be darkness in the light is from a shadow, don't be the one that blocks the light of Jesus to people around you, open your heart and let His light shine.
Proverbs 11:9 KJV
King James Version
An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered .
