In Matthew 5, Jesus shares about how to live the BLESSED LIFE. It comes from within. Imagine all of the people in this picture being lit and powered by their relationship with Jesus Christ. It would take a steady focus, committment, but most importantly staying connected to the Power Source. Isn't that the plan? A group of people... followers of Christ... christians... being mini-replicas of the ONE who they are following... working together... to shine light in the darkness....
Yesterday, a friend shared with me that she spends 2 hours, each morning, praising Jesus and re-connecting with Him. Priorities! Focus! Connection! Light for a dark world!
Last night, as I taught the 3rd and 4th grade Bible class for our church family, we continued our study of the book of Matthew. There's a whole lot about leading THE BLESSED LIFE in that Gospel book! The last section of the book shares some of Jesus' last words to His disciples on earth. It ends with the challenge for us to GO LIGHT OUR WORLD!
Obey! Go! Teach! Baptize! Obey!
