25 Apr Flourish: A Love To Testify To
What you believe about the hereafter profoundly effects how you live here and now.
So, the question we have to ask ourselves is, “What do I believe about the hereafter, and does my life reflect that belief?” Let me put it another way: Do you really believe that without Christ people will be eternally separated from God…forever? You answer to that question will be determined by whether you believe that Jesus was really who He said He was, the Son of God, or not. If you can answer an emphatic yes to those questions then there is no legitimate reason to keep you from sharing your life of faith in Christ with others. There’s a dark, lost world out there desperately seeking real answers. We’ve got to break out of our comfortable, holy huddles and share the Good News of Jesus Christ! He is the Answer, the Alpha and Omega, to every question and every need you or anybody else will ever have.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion is to look out to the world.
Yours are the feet with which Christ is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands with which Christ is to bless all people now.
-Teresa of Avila
…you are greatly and dearly loved by the King!
