DAY 9 - We are a Display of God
Today’s Reading: John 9
(Please read John 9: 1 – 41 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)
Please click the links below to John 9:
“But this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.” John 9: 3
The reason for quite a number of people not believing in Jesus is because some of their relatives and friends or just one relative /friend display a life that is contrary to what a Christian should be. There were times when I shared my faith with some people they said, “When I see what my friend has been doing, I do not want to be a Christian.”
We are a display of God! Jesus opened a blind man’s eyes that the work of God be displayed. Jesus turns darkness into light, bitterness into sweetness, discouragement into encouragement, weak into strong and blindness into sight. But, the display of the darkness and bitterness of our life can turn someone away from Jesus. Do we understand that we are a display of God!
Jesus told me this morning that what I think, say and do is a display of God. Be careful!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thanks for your warning today that I am a display of you. I know that lots of time I am blind and weak. Help me to see and be strong that the work of you might be displayed in my life. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
