going public

19 08 2012

“Here’s another way to put it:
You’re here to be light,
bringing out the God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be kept.
We’re going public with this,
as public as a city on a hill.

If I make you light-bearers,
you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you?
I’m putting you on a light stand.
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop,
on a light stand—

Keep open house;
be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others,
you’ll prompt people to open up with God,
this generous Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message)

I’m struck by the boldness here; how the whole thing will speak strongly to me and many, but really well to young adult Christians. My church is launching a service to INVITE this generation of the unchurched. To me this image perfectly speaks to them.

The previous post was about Light… have to chuckle when you are so near to the same topic… different focus. And nothing is much more joyful than being a Light-bearer. What a blessing to have that God-job that is such a privilege.

Thanks, Joanne. Yes, it is a privilege! What an honor to shine for Him.
