Whatever you do for others you don't have to go around looking for praise from other peoples. Whatever you do let it be secretly so God can be glorified. Its not about us Its all about HIM.

I believe as readers of the word we should be doers of the word! Not saying we will not fall but we admit to our falling and ask for forgiveness and pick the torch back up for all to see not for self glory. But for the glory to god and for all to see his mercy!

This Text is reminding me as an individual who calls myself as a christian to be alert all the time since others are watching out see whether am a true replica of Christ throug my actions whether in speech, dressing, eating , drinking, chatting , making of friends. I mean every act i commit as an individual on this earth. THIS WHAT GINGERS OTHERS ALSO TO RECEIVE OR NOT TO RECEIVE THE MESSAGE ABOUT CHRIST. Hence we must always be on an alert to live a PLEASING LIFE FOR CHRIST.

Every form of darkness provides opportunity for us to shine as children of God.

The secret of illuminating as the light is the secret of ones closet, note the the world we are in is dark, crooked and slippery our obligation as a child of the Most High God is to shine so that we may not wall in darkness of the world.

Since we are the light of the world and are set upon a hill, so that everyone can see it. We have to understand that because we are a light, we will be noticed. No one can be a secret Christian these days because light shines the best when it's dark and we all know that the world we live in today is very dark. So keep shinning through both positive and negative responses because that's what light does.

To have salvation of Jesus is to have the light of the world.

 

Geraldine Smith's comment on 2012-09-28 09:40:13:

We as people of God should have a daily testimony of something new that God has done for us since the day before! If you are reading this post, you already have one testimony among many others to testify about! Remember, the world is watching to see if we are of an honesty report. Meaning our character and actions could cause a lost soul to want to remain lost.

Let your salvation be known before all that they may see God's work through you and want to serve and praise the God u serve

This bible portion is wake up call to all who profess to be followers of CHRIST. That we may conduct ourselves properly in every area of our lives. In dressing, modest; in speech, edifying; etc. It is by so doing that men would desire to be part of this only way to the Living GOD. FAITH WITHOUT WORK, IT IS WRITTEN, IS DEAD. We must defend our faith by our daily conduct and thus bring glory to God. It is written,He that winneth a soul is wise. soul winning is only possible via our wise disposition.
