What Message is My Life Portraying?
My life is a message. As a follower of Christ everything I do, day in and day out, sends a message to those around me. I am either sending a message of love, value and acceptance or I am sending a message of disappointment, judgment and rejection.
The way I live my life tells my message. I am either telling a message of hope and optimism or I am telling a message of gloom and despair. Either way, people are getting the message of my life by just being around me.
My life is a message . . . to my children, my wife, my extended family, my co-workers, even to people that I don’t know yet who intersect with me at the store, gas station, or other public places.
My life is a message. What message do I want to give?
As a follower of Jesus, I want my message to be one that mirrors the message that Jesus brought when He lived on earth as a man. His message was one of love and grace. His message was that we have a Heavenly Father who isn’t looking to condemn people but wants people to have a child-father relationship with Him. Jesus’ message was a love that would die for his enemies so that they might become his friends. Is the message I am presenting that bold, that daring and that radical?
My life is a message.
Your life is a message.
