I think We can draw comparisons between how Our appearance appears in and also out of Church. Do We go out those doors and leave it there til next Sunday? How do We appear to God and Christ and those on the other side of eternity, Oh, do let Us All know please, God.
Do we keep up the appearance of doing good by e.g. charity works but boasting about it or do We just get on with it extracting the joy and blessing that comes through quiet service.
Faith, worship and doing good appear good, but without Christ and the aim to please and give Glory to God their meaning is less. We can go to church right enough but what is in Our hearts when We come out and go back home?
I say, let the person or group know that You did it because You are Christ like - a Christian. God will prompt the time to say this to spread the good news of the gospel and give Them the gift of the Holy Spirit and, of course the hope that comes through following Our Lord.
After All, I was what You could have called a charity case when Christ found Me - I needed a lot of help, input, repetition, counselling and strength and He has never boasted about all He did or even said an unkind word about Me; even when I didn't merit such kindness, he still gave it and gives it.
Lord, Jesus Christ, You have been and still are My Christ, My clown when I get down, My companion always there for Me, My counsellor when I've needed a shoulder to let it out,, My comforter when All around were loosing Their head - You kept Yours close to Mines and You are My carer with such tender m. I can only hope that I can return some of the favour and mercy You have given Me and yes, I will boast about that without hesitation.
God and Christ, grant Us the blessed presence of Yourselves in new ways. Let Us go deeper and get into those recesses of minds and hearts and bring out the best in Us as You are THE best for Us and want the best for Us. You give Us all of these things freely and so let Us tell Others about Your deeds so that They get to know You just as closely, Our Christ and heavenly Father, i thank You and adore You and give You both the rightful glory back for the past, present and future. Amen.
