As we come closer to Christmas Day, all filled with joy and the spirit of Christmas, let’s decide today to not to let this spirit die in the days to come.
A Spirit of joy, love and peace is not just to be shared a certain month but throughout the entirety of your year, your life. Doing so we live the life called by God, a life taking shape in the image of Christ.
In the coming days, make an effort to be intentionally kind and helpful to all beside you.
In every situation, ask this question: Do I have the attitude of Christ ?
Let the answer guide your acts.
Share the love of Christ to all beside you. Yes it can be very intimidating to share your faith or talk about the love of God to your next door neighbour or your co-worker or classmate. But let’s begin with baby steps.
Let’s practice what we preach. By our acts let others see Christ in us. Let them wonder what is it that makes our lives special, joyful and rich in love even amidst the troubles of life.
So let’s focus on living out the Word of God, so that others may come to know the Lord.
No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand. Then its light shines on everyone in the house.- Mathew 5:15
Let’s pray that everyday we be encouraged by the Holy Spirit to live a life pleasing to God, a life committed to Christ.
Use your talents and abilities given by God to spread His Word.
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.- Mathew 5:13
