II Corinthians 3:2-3 "Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart."
Unsaved people watch those who profess to be Christians. They watch for their mistakes...they watch for their sins. They listen to their words. An unsaved man is looking for a reason not to be a Christian. he thinks he can even satisfy God if he can find fault in one of God's children. He thinks he can justify himself of his constant rejection of Jesus Christ and his continued living in sin. So the unsaved watch the saved.
You may not be conscious of that but someone is always watching you. You are the ONLY Christian SOMEONE knows. What a humbling thought...to be the ONLY Christian that SOMEONE knows. That statement got my attention immediately. To think that I may be the only child of God someone knows!! Not only that thought...but you are the BEST Christian that SOMEONE knows. And you may not even have what some would consider a godly life...but you are still the BEST Christian that SOMEONE knows. Is there enough of God in your life to show someone that you are different and that you have something that someone would like to have for themselves? We are the only hope of SOMEONE ever missing Hell and gaining Heaven and coming out of darkness into light.
How is your testimony for the Lord? Is it one that if someone were reading your life that they would see enough to want to be like Jesus and have Him in their life? We must pray DAILY that the Lord help us to be what He would have us to be so when someone reads our life each day that they would see and hear Christ in us!!
