Nope, I’m not going to tell you to go out and preach the Gospel. I find that some of you can, and most of you are pretty uncomfortable doing it. But the cool thing is we can show Jesus through the way we live.
I was at the doctor’s office a few months ago, a specialist I’d never been to before. The nurse talked to me at 3 different times before & after the procedure. Somehow she made me feel so warm and comfortable….even though that was NOT how one should feel in this particular situation (I will spare you the details. Trust me you don’t want to know).
Anyway, I realized quickly that she was a Christian, and the Light shining through her was from Him. As it should be. The only real words she said that might, and only might, have indicated it were these: “There may be something wrong, or it may be nothing; it could be the way the Good Lord made you.”
Below is a link to a great blog post about letting Jesus shine through you, instead of hitting people over the head with a Bible. That usually doesn’t work, not for me anyway. 🙂

Psalm 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
Do you feel that’s true for you? Does He give you what you desire? If not….why?
Watch the video for the answer to these important questions. Have your Bible handy!
If any of you should ask me for an epitome of the Christian religion, I should say that it is in one word – prayer. Live and die without prayer, and you will pray long enough when you get to hell. –Charles Spurgeon
Spurgeon has a way of getting right down to the heart of the matter, doesn’t he? I’m working on another book or bible study series, this time about prayer. It’s the best thing we can do for ourselves!
Also I added a new article to my website this morning. It’s here
Thomas Merton wrote: “If you write for God, you will reach many people and bring them joy. If you write for people, you may make some money and you may give someone a little joy and you may make a noise in the world, for a little while. If you write only for yourself , you can read what you yourself have written and after ten minutes you will be so disgusted, you will wish that you were dead.”
This is a VERY SHORT video that I made because I was running off on tangents in the previous one. Here’s one of the tangents: do you use visual aids to help you remember things God told you, Bible verses, etc? What are they? Here are a couple of mine. 🙂
In Psalm 73, we see how the Psalmist begins by having some doubt and wondering why the wicked “seem” to be successful. Then he comes before the Lord and his peace is restored….he begins to worship. Follow along with me as we study this important chapter.
So many Christians have feelings of guilt. They could be legitimate — or it could be false guilt, brought on by the enemy to make you feel confused and ashamed instead of victorious! Watch the video to find out more.
