walking encouraged


“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”  Matthew 5:14-16

The world needs to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.  As people of faith, we have to remain vigilant and alert for any opportunity to provide encouragement, to share our faith and to lead someone to Christ. Darkness and sin are pervasive but we carry the light for the world through our relationship with Jesus Christ.  Being a consistent example of His transformative love sets the stage for us to reach out to others.  In our daily travels, the Lord provides open doors for us to make connections with other souls through a smile, a greeting or a shared conversation.  We can use these opportunities to be nice, be encouraging, to be a light for Him.  The witness of our living and our interactions with His people helps the world to see Him more clearly.  The world needs to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.  We can pray for the right words, the right action to maximize our interactions on behalf of our Heavenly Father.  He is faithful to lead and to guide.  Let’s share the Good News of hope, love and salvation each time we encounter an open door.
