Representing Christ

I lay awake last night at 4am thinking about how crazy the past few weeks have been. So many stretches in life, so many changes and thoughts running through my head. Then the Lord reveled to me a beautiful thought: 
He chose me to represent Him.
I lay there in bed smiling in the darkness, because of the light that shone in my heart.

What an honor it is that God gave us the privilege to represent His Name! If you are a follower of Christ, you are destined to make Him famous. Yet are we? What are we doing to make Him known?

I went to the hospital again yesterday, for seizures caused by dehydration. When I woke up in the bed, I couldn't talk. The sweetest nurse came in and started talking to me and saying how much she adored me :) She wanted to take me home and take care of me. I wondered why? I wasn't able to talk, and was laying there just smiling at her. Then I realized that maybe that was Jesus allowing me to smile and make her day a little better.

That is Jesus. 

A smiling Father that adores His children, carrying them through the trials of this life, and helping them grow in the knowledge of Himself through correction and instructions in righteousness. And our job here is to tell other people about Him, through our words and actions...all of them supposed to point others to Christ. When people see the things we do, they should see Jesus. When they hear the things we talk about, they should think about Jesus. It's not about us, it's all about Him.

So as you walk around doing your everyday things, finding joy in the midst of dark circumstances and smiling at those you see...make Him famous. Be a beautiful representation of Christ. Let His Name be made known throughout all the earth. And most of all, enjoy the life God gave you!

He is worthy and greatly to be praised
