Earlier this year, Alan and I decided to join a different church. We had visited this particular church and felt welcome. This change had come after many prayers, questions and discussions with each other and with friends and family. The decision was made to start attending the new church and get involved in activities and then, join the congregation. We are very pleased with our decision.
One of the main questions we discussed with each other was “How can we glorify God through attending a different church? How can we shine His light to others?” Seems like simple questions to some people, but, to us, this is serious business.
Alan and I both want to show God’s love in all we say and do. We want other people to know we love Christ and that Christ loves us and them, too.
Isn’t that the way God wants us to show love to each other? In our words and our actions, we can show His love each and every moment of the day. A smile, a friendly hello, a phone call, a letter, and in many other ways we can show His love.
One example is to keep in touch with friends at our former church. We know someone who always says, “A friend is a friend for life. We will keep in touch.” That friend is showing God’s love.
Think of ways that you can shine His light to others. Can you think of someone right now who might need love? Call that person, send a letter, or better yet, go visit them. 🙂
Have a wonderful day and yes, let’s “Keep in touch”
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world.”
