I was reminded again this week about the importance of sharing our faith with others. That is our faith in Christ, is not meant to be a secret we keep to ourselves but something that we needed to take public into our world.
“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14 – 16 (MSG).
As believers, we are the salt and the light of the world and sometimes we are the only Jesus that some people might see. Let’s be encouraged to take the good news of Jesus public into every area of our life by being generous with our lives, our speech and our deeds.
It’s time to take this public!!
