But then God always has a way out…and He shows me things that I can’t even fathom…why? I wonder.
Our walk with Christ should be evidenced by our daily lives. Our daily lives should reflect Christ’s influence, His love, His grace and His mercy. We should be pleading with those around us for “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” 2 Cor. 5:20. We don’t do that…instead we rely on empty platitudes to reach the lost, to comfort the hurting, well … at least we try, or so we convince ourselves. Sometimes we don’t even do that preferring to separate ourselves from anyone not walking as we walk.
In these last days, it does not suffice to merely quote scripture…we know what the Bible says about that. We serve a living God and yet the evidence of that is minuscule. Have mercy on us, my Lord.
