what do you see?

It’s Saturday, so I headed over to Internet Cafe Devotions for their weekly “Cafe Chat” where they are talking about…

In the eyes of the world, it is not our relationship with Jesus Christ that counts; it is our resemblance to him!

When you read the quote above, especially the last part of the quote, do you agree with the author or disagree? Why did you answer the way you did?

 

 

And I’m reminded of the quote from St. Francis of Assisi that states “Share the gospel with everyone you meet. Use words when necessary.”

I’m not much of a verbal evangelist.

Don’t hear me wrong, I want everyone I know to know the Jesus that I know.

But I’m not necessarily very good at explaining how great He is with my words.

So, my heart’s desire is that when people look at me, they would see a glimpse Jesus.

Not because I am good. Or super-spiritual. Or even always joyful.

But because I’m forgiven.

That I would live in such a way that exemplifies the gratefulness I have that Jesus can see all my junk…and still determine that I can be more.

More like Him.

  1. I know exactly what you mean; I’m not much of a verbal evangelist myself and I sometimes feel guilty because I was taught that witnessing was mostly verbal. Still, I like for people to look at me and see Jesus
