What is it that we really need to be a witness in this world?
How will they know that we are HIS??? Should we wear longer skirts? Longer sleeves? Higher necklines? Maybe if we walked around at all times with a big family Bible quoting scriptures and rebuking sinners, maybe, just MAYBE THEN we could be a witness!!! What can we really, really do to SHOW THE WORLD???
Now don't get me wrong, I have very STRONG conviction concerning holiness, but I don't think it is that, that ALONE is going to really SHOW THE WORLD...the Bible clearly states ONE WAY that they will NO DOUBT KNOW that we are God's...
"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:35
Don't get me wrong, we've got to have modesty, holiness, morality...buuuuut we've got to learn how to LOVE EACH OTHER!!! God's people should be known as LOVING people!!! Annnnnd not just to sinners, buuuuuut TO EACH OTHER!!!
"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." (1 John 4:8) If you can't love the people you go to church with, then you MUST NOT really KNOW GOD!!! IF you want to be a stronger witness, ask God to give you a spirit of love. Ask God to fill your church with a spirit of love!!!
" Though I speake with the tongues of men & of Angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brasse or a tinkling cymbal." (1 Corinthians 13:1)
We are WORTHLESS if we don't know HOW to LOVE!!! There is no greater way to show someone Jesus than to show them love. You can't ARGUE LOVE!!! The strongest evidence someone can ever be shown of God is LOVE!
God fill my heart with MORE of your love!!!♥Mary Frances :)
