Show Jesus

This past week and a half has been incredibly challenging!! Most of all, it has been a challenge to keep my attitude and my opinions in check and to really pray about/figure out whether what I say and feel is right. I have also been challenged about how my words and actions reflect the love of Jesus.

I read this post by Joyce Meyer today and it really reinforced the challenge to me. I hope it makes you think!

Show Jesus

by Joyce Meyer - posted April 24, 2013

And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave you.—Ephesians 4:32

I hope to show to everyone I meet the character of Jesus through my words and actions. I pray that everyone who contacts our ministry team will say: “Those people are full of Jesus. They are patient, kind, and sweet.”

We are containers capable of being filled to overflowing with the Spirit of Jesus, who dwells in our hearts. If we understand that everywhere we go we can demonstrate His character and virtue, we will be as the Word says—lights in a dark world (see Philippians 2:15).

Jesus called us the salt of the earth (see Matthew 5:13). Salt gives flavor to what is otherwise bland or tasteless. Be salt today—at home, at your job, wherever you go.

{From the book Starting Your Day Right by Joyce Meyer}
