As you go about your day, please don’t forget to bring Christ with you. It’s too easy sometimes for us to get caught up in our rituals and lose sight of what is really important; so often forgetting to take Jesus with us as we head out the door to go about our day.
As you get up in the morning, don’t forget to say hello to God and pray for a covering over your day. Pray and ask Him to inspire your actions and your speech. Whether you are going to work, heading to the grocery store or bank, consider the harvest of hungry souls out there longing for direction and truth. So many have a void in their life they don’t realize can only be filled by Christ. Ask God to help you be that “Jesus” that someone needs. Some things to consider when heading out the door of your home:
- Just saying hello to someone and giving a smile can brighten someone’s day so much. Say a prayer for the person that the Lord would touch their day. You might be surprised how an empathetic or compassionate smile can impact someone who needs it.
- Cease the opportunity to pray for or with someone in the way the Lord leads your heart. Some may be too shy to ask for prayer. I’m not necessarily talking about approaching strangers (but if you’re led to do that, then by all means). But, if there is a person you know that needs prayer, make sure they’re not forgotten.
- Keep in mind everyone has a story, each one of us struggles. There is not one person’s life that Christ can’t touch on a day to day basis. Christ can use any of us to be a light to others in one way or another. Never underestimate the power of God!
Please look at the life of Christ and how He reached others. Some sought Him, but He met many people where they were to touch their life. As you go about your day and as Jesus Christ dwells in your heart, please keep in mind you may be the only “Jesus” someone sees that day. You have an opportunity to let your light shine for Christ. Please don’t just save it for the inner walls of your church sanctuary. Don’t leave Him at home or in your car. Bring Him with you.
