Are you living in such a way that people have questions about your life?
Does your passion for life and unique ways of serving everyone cause those who are far from Jesus to wonder about you?
Does your attitude of joy, hope and willingness touch everyone in such away that they are wondering how can you be so full of life?
Does your conversation about other people behind their back shock others because what you say is not negative but rather always pointing out the positive?
Do your daily random acts of service cause people to take notice?
"All of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing." 1 Peter 3:8-9
"Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil." 1 Peter 3:13-17
As you Listen to Jesus every morning...
As you Risk to do the creative idea He gives you to do...
As your Christ like attitude, conversation about others and these random acts of service are others asking you why are you so full of the joy of life?
Are others amazed at how you are more and more alive like Jesus?
Are others desirous to sit down and talk with you about life?
Are you weekly Sharing with others about how Jesus is your best friend whom you cannot do your day without?
Are you LR, BB and S so much so that others are asking you to S?
Are you Listening to God, Risking to do what God says, Being with others and Building them up and Serving them in such away that they are asking you to Share why you are so alive with a beautiful freshness?
Who is going to want to become a follower of Jesus because you are LR, BB and SSing?
Maybe this Easter our church will be filled with the people in each of your lives who are far from God because we are LR, BB and SSing.
Can you see hell depopulating?
Can you see heaven populating?
Praying for Jesus to be so alive in you that it causes others to ask you questions,
