Our Living Witness

The Apostle Paul writes in his second letter to the church at Corinth, "You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody." Have you ever stopped to think that we are Christ's letter to the world?

Yesterday afternoon, a neighbor lady came to pick up something for her husband. They recently went through a rough time in their lives. We have been praying for them for a while. She asked me if she could go to church with me this Sunday. I had been wanting to ask her family but didn't want to intrude on their situation.

She told me she had been in church as a child and decided she needed to get back to her faith.

My husband later told me to read 2 Corinthians 3:1-3. He then reminded me that people are watching us as we go through our days.

Today, I received the current issue of a small literary magazine I contribute to. The lady who publishes it had made an error. She credited something to me that I didn't write. I called her and talked to her about it. I told her I was not going to cash the check. It was for a nominal sum. Just before we hung up, she thanked me for my honesty and then said," But, I wouldn't expect less from you."

This tells me I need to always be careful of my behavior. I have had two reminders that people really do watch Christians.

  1. It's a wonderful and fearful thing that people ARE watching, isn't it? They are watching our lives, reading every road sign we make as they search for the right path for their own lives.

    Lord, make my life transparant so that, when they watch me, they'll see You.



I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
