Phil 1:20 “…according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing, I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by living or dying.
(How magnified is Christ in our lives? I’m afraid he isn’t that magnified when I lose my temper, gossip, or become selfish with my desires and needs being placed over others in my life.
Yet, that should be our aim as we seek to serve the Lord and let others see Jesus in us.💥
For Paul, it was his consuming desire to let Christ be evident in all he did.
💥 It changed his life so much that he went everywhere telling everyone about Christ’s saving power and what He had done for him; so much so that was willing to let Christ be magnified either by living or dying.
How do I fulfill Paul’s desire in my life?
The world is so full of things that entrap us and take our focus off God’s will and purpose for me.
💥 Our prayer must be like John the Baptist when they talked about Jesus baptizing more people than him. He rejoiced and said “He must increase but I must decrease”
John 3:30. That is what should be our prayer every day.💥
It ought to be hard to keep the greatest thing that has ever happened to you and will happen to you a secret.
Like the disciples, we ought to say, “We can say, “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”
💥Acts 4:29 We should have a Jesus meter on us and to detect how much Jesus is seen in us.
💥 But I’m sure all the people around you can tell you that by your speech and actions.
💥 Let’s all follow B.B. Mckinney’s words in his song: “Let others see Jesus in You: Keep Telling the Story be Faithful and True.
💥 Let Others See Jesus in You.” It ought to be hard to keep a secret what Jesus has done for you: I won’t will you?
