Shine for Jesus

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation. (1Peter 5:11-12)

We are to try to make the world a better place by displaying the love of Christ wherever God has placed us.

When apostle Peter wrote to persecuted Christian believers in Asia Minor (modern Turkey), he advised them to keep their conduct honorable among the Gentiles, by doing good deeds that will ultimately bring glory to God.

We can make our world a better place through our actions.

Think of the difference that Christlike deeds of love, mercy, forgiveness, justice, and peace would make in our world.

Let us make the world we live a better place.

We cannot change the entire world singlehandedly, but by God's grace we can let the difference Christ has made in us make a difference in the world around us.

Let us let Christ shine through us.
