Living His Love

"The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it" (1 Thessalonians 5:24, NIV).
There are very few places in the world that have not heard about the redeeming love of Jesus Christ. But what the world needs is not just to hear about His love, but to experience it. Many Christians speak about Him and try to share Him with others, but are surprised when their words have little impact. They are only words spoken about Him. They are not His words living through them.

The world needs to see Him in my life. It doesn't need to hear about His power, but it needs to experience it through me. It doesn't need to hear about His peace, but it needs to see it alive in me. It needs to see His calming faith no matter what the circumstances. It doesn't need to hear about His joy, but it needs to see His joy spring up from depths of sure trust in His faithfulness. It doesn't need to just hear of His love, but it needs to experience the forgiving grace of His love through me.

If I allow Him to live in me, those in my little world will discover they will make a choice. They shall either accept Him or reject Him. If I have allowed Him to live and love through me, they will have experienced His power and His love, but it is not my place to save. I can't choose Him for someone else. It is my place to share and be changed by what He has done in my life. If I am His vessel, one that is broken and spilled out for Him, He will do the work.
