Are we attracting others to Jesus by the way we live?
God gathers and unites. As a church we are meant to attract others into the faith. By our way of living we need to inspire those around us to want to get to know Jesus. Regardless of the current economical, political, or social issues we are all meant to seek and walk towards God.
How are we attracting others to Christ? We can do so by mentioning to people we encounter how good Jesus has been to us. Taking time to express to the world our gratitude for God’s love. Sometimes people may be unaware of the impact God is having on us if we don’t vocalize it.
We can also spread the love for Jesus by showing love and mercy. Maybe we can spend time with someone who doesn’t have any company and by doing so let them know that God is with them through us. In this way we are revealing God’s care for us with our actions.
In either way, let us continue and grow our lives reflecting God to others. We may not see the effects of our a Christian lives but it will have an impact on the world. Because bringing God to every person and situation brings forth the divine. And we all will exclaim ”let us go together to see the Lord.”
