If we claim that we experience a shared life with him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we’re obviously lying through our teeth – we’re not living what we claim. (1 John 1:6, The Message)
Nothing like an in-your-face scripture to start you off on your day! I often wonder what people see when they look at me. Do my actions and the way I speak show others that Jesus Christ is living inside of me? Or am I just going through the motions and becoming insensitive to the hundreds of people I am with in the period of a week. Are we running around stressed and complaining about everything we do? I choose not to be like everyone else. He has created me for a purpose and I refuse to live a mediocre life – this is my prayer for today.
Prayer: Lord, help us to live the kind of lives that you designed for us. Let us shine in the dark place that we are living in. In Jesus name, amen.
