Today we are continuing our topic of showing Jesus, letting our lights shine to our friends and family. Make sure to subscribe to the email list through the form below, so you don’t miss a post!
6. Post. The world of social media can be a source for so much good! Rather than posting that 15th funny cat video or ranting about the political candidate you despise, use your social media to show Jesus. Post a Bible verse, an inspiring quote, an encouraging article. Use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or whatever you use as a tool to connect your friends and family to Christ.
7. Engage. Talk about Jesus with your friends (and random strangers)! Step out of your comfort zone and go talk to your friend at school or the cashier at Walmart about where they go to church or their religious background. This does take practice, but it gets easier the more you do it. And who knows, that friend from school could become a child of God because you just talked to them.
8. Choose. In most areas of life, you have a choice. You can choose to watch that R rated movie. You can choose to read those books that “everyone is reading”. Choose in a way that reflects Christ living in you, not in a way that would disappoint Him.
9. Think. Philippians 4:2 is a very famous passage that tells us to think on whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable and excellent. When we are constantly dwelling on impure thoughts and negativity, what do you think is going to come out of our mouths? If you think that you’re thoughts don’t affect anything, you’re fooling yourself. Think on excellent things, worthy of your calling.
10. Persevere. So many times, we can’t stand to be different from “everybody else”. We don’t want people to think we’re weird. When we are verbally (or physically) persecuted by our friends and family who don’t want to accept Christ, that means they need Him all the more. Never stop living for Christ, showing Him in all you do.
I pray that these 10 steps help you show Jesus in your life. Make your life goal to have everyone around you know that you’re living for Jesus, not for your glory, but for His. To God be the glory.
