This got me thinking though, evidently, I had spoken enough about Canada with this individual for him to see fit to refer to me as the Canadian. My speech about Canada, got me to be defined as, and differentiated from others by, the fact that I live in Canada. But what if people saw me not as the Canadian and rather as the Christian? What if my speech about Jesus got me to be defined as, and differentiated from others by the fact that Jesus lives in me? I'm not talking about being seen as better than others, I'm talking about people seeing Jesus Christ inside me.
I thought about something similar once as I walked down the street wearing a tee shirt and hat with the name of the company I work for. It has made me think, I will be representing the company in people's eyes when I wear their name, is what I am doing reflecting that company properly? But God soon showed me, I represent Him all the time. Am I representing Him properly?
There is an old song that says,
And they will know we are Christians by our love.
I want to represent Him accurately. And how do we do this? As always, pray! We need to ask the Lord how He wants us to represent Him today, and to allow Him to show us how we should walk by His written word.
May you represent the Lord accurately today. And may people know you are Christians by your Love. Jesus Love.
