The greatest stumbling block to unbelievers accepting Christ has been the lifestyles of believers themselves. Jesus was telling the disciples in Matthew 5:13-16 that we are both salt and light to the world. This is very important as these two things cannot go out of use as long as the world remains. There is the need to let the light of our lives be seen by the world so that they will appreciate how bright and loving the Father in heaven is. Everyone loves light, not darkness, and darkness itself is just the absence of light. When people see us, our lives should so preach the light of God to them that they may be comforted. Also, being a salt means that our lives must sweeten or add flavour to someone’s bitter situation.
Now, whatever we do with our lives matters so much. The world does not read the Bible; we are the Bible they read: our lifestyles. The lives of the disciples portrayed Christ and they were named Christians, the name which we bear today. We are the fifth gospel written to the world and the last living epistle to our generation. Our lives must preach the gospel to everyone around us.
Naomi had nothing to give to Ruth, but Ruth decided go with her. The light of God must have been shown through Naomi to the extent that Ruth saw something unique and she did not want to let go.
Can anyone stick to you because of your lifestyle? Has anyone told you he/she can see the goodness of the Lord through your life? If not, there is still much to be done by you. Let your life positively speak volumes to people in your compound, place of work, church and to unbelievers so that they may glorify God.
2 Corinthians 3:3 “Forasmuch as you are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.”
Father, help my life to become the true gospel that all who see me may read and understand your glorious love and grace, for in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
