Wisdom For The Day Devotional 13 February 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Let’s Show-Case Jesus To Our World
TOPIC: Let’s Show-Case Jesus To Our World (TREM Devotional 13 February 2024)
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 (KJV)
As a believer, what is your individual testimony outside the church? Are you making a formidable impact in your world? Yes, you have received Christ, but can people look at you and say: I love this person? I like to be like him”. Is that your testimony? Or are you the type that people are afraid to come close to because your mouth is like a razor blade? Are you a thief and a liar outside the church? Are you part of those who change figures and loot the treasury?
As a child of God, you ought to show the way. You should be the beacon of light that gives direction to people. You should show people a better way to live.
Jesus wants us to showcase Him to our world through our lives. Let the Christ in you be visible to your world! You are a city on a hill. Shine for the world to see. Be generous! By opening up to others, you prompt people to open up to God, your generous Heavenly Father.
“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” (Ephesians 4:29 KJV) You will be shocked at the type of words that proceed out of some people’s mouths when they have altercations with others. They behave pious in church and become something else outside the church. That is the problem. People are coming to church, but there is no evidence of transformation in their lives.
Until you are transformed inside out by Christ, you cannot be a vessel to showcase Him. Take a quality decision to be an example of a believer in your world.
