Pastor's Desk

Does He Show?
One Sunday as they drove home from church, a little girl turned to her mother and said, “Mommy, there’s something about the preacher’s message this morning that I don’t understand.” The mother said, “Oh? What is it?”

The little girl replied, “Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. He said God is so big that He could hold the world in His hand. Is that true?” The mother replied, “Yes, that's true, home.”

“But Mommy, he also said that God comes to live inside of us when we believe in Jesus as our Savior. Is that true, too?” Again, the mother assured the little girl that what the pastor had said was true.

With a puzzled look on her face the little girl then asked, “If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn’t He show through?”

It is a cute little story but it really cuts through to a serious point. Does Jesus show His light though you into this dark world? Is He actually the Lord of your life? Not just Savior...but Lord? Is His Spirit so clearly evident to those around you that there is no question as to who is Lord of your life?

This week, do your best to show His love to someone. Participate in at least one random act of grace. Show His love in a tangible way that blesses someone else...write a letter...send a car… make time to have coffee...lend and ear...hold the door... make a phone call...the list goes on and on… pray over it...then DO IT! He’ll lead you through it.
