Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

Monday, December 18, 2006

So you think that it is about you?

"But we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." II Corinthians 3:18

So you think it's all about you?

One day our life will be over.

How will stand as you are judged by the Almighty?

Will you be remembered for your good or for being evil?

Will you be remembered for being smart?

Will you be remembered for how successful you were?

Will you be remembered how pretty or how ugly you thought you were?

Do you think being rich or poor will matter, or even if you were healthy or sick?

The answer is No!

The only that will matter on that day when we stand before the Almighty One is....

Did you glorify Him?

Did you live your life in such a way that truly demonstrated who He really is?

Did you tell others about Him?

Did you finish that walk that He gave to you?

Did you do as He called you to do?

Were you who you were to be in Him?

Was He alone your God?

These are just some of the questions that He will go over with you.

You can start by answering these questions.

How do you fare?

Why wait till it is over?

You don't have too wait!

It's not to late.

Ask Him to help change you.

Ask Him to come into your heart and abide there.

We as Christians are to show the love of God.

We are to reflect His light!

When we reflect His light, our whole life becomes unveiled before man.

You see, when the Holy Spirit is living on the inside we can not help but mirror the image of God's own character.

One of my favorite analogies is that of the sun and the moon.

What does the sun and moon have to do with our Christian walk?

It has everything to do with our Christian walk!

The sun and moon are very good models.

Watch now.

The sun who is the grater light shines in the day.

The moon which is the lesser light shines at night.

Right?

When the moon is apart from the sun it is only a pitch black rock.

When the moon gets the light from the sun, it reflects a soft light from it.

So in the absence of the sun there is that soft glow, not darkness any more.

We are called to shine that light as the moon does.

We are called to be a light for Him.

"But the path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble." Proverbs 4:18-19

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid." Matthew 5:14

The greater light shines during the day, while the lesser moon shines at night.

The sun, which is the Son.

The moon, which is us (the church).

The moon is called to reflect the sun.

We are to reflect the light from the Son.

It is when we are in our proper place, the place where God has called us to be then we will have that soft glow, that light that reflects the Son.

We will be reflecting His light!

He is the source!

When we get big headed, think we have done something and don't give Him the credit or we start thinking that the world revolves around us then we start losing our potential.

We will lose that light.

We will be out of relationship with Him.

We will not be in the presence of the Son, and bad things will start to happen.

Remember darkness comes when there is no light.

Which would you rather be in dark or light?

We are to reflect His light in the absence of the Son.

We are to keep our concentration upon Him!

We are to keep Him first in all we do!

We are to reflect his light.

How can we reflect His light if we have our priorities upon self?

We are to live according to His will and His ways!

When you become a Christian people will step back and watch every little thing that comes your way and how you react to it.

That means even when you think that no one is looking.

Even when no one is there God sees everything!

We must learn to demonstrate who He truly is, whether or not someone is there or not.

You never know who could be watching your life and how it will effect theirs.

Let us learn to walk according to His will, His ways and under his direction.

Nothing else matters!

We are to glorify Him.

He is the only One to whom we are accountable too.

He is the only One who matters!

So let your light shine today, tomorrow and each and every day.

Let us stay in tune with God in our Christian walk.

"For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: Thou art God alone. Teach me Thy way, O Lord; I will walk in Thy truth: unite my heart to fear Thy name. I will praise Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify Thy name for evermore. For great is Thy mercy toward me: and Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell." Psalm 86:10-13
