Heavenly tool? When you own a tool it’s better used when you learn how to use it to its greatest potential. So it is also with your faith. Know what it can do for you and how to use it.
Think about it. When you and I walk through this world, do we reflect the light of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, so that someone living in darkness might also see the same light that we can see? When we don’t live our faith but simply keep it to ourselves, we deny others the eternal reward that our faith, working for them, can give.
God’s Word tells us: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).
When we are quiet but should be speaking up, we deny the light. When we go along with what the crowd is doing, we deny the light. When we allow sin to dim our light, we deny the light. Just like the tools we own never realize their full potential until you push them to their limits, so too is our faith. Left alone, it is but a tool. Pushed to its fullest potential, as a tool in the hands of the Almighty God, that potential is limitless.
“Heavenly Father. We pray that this would be true of us and of my life. And I pray, help us to be light today to our family, friends and everyone we meet.. Help us to love and serve and shine today in ways that reflect your character, your truth, your grace, your mercy, your love, your compassion. In Jesus name, Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
