Be the Light... a reflection of grace

Updated: Jan 18

As believers it is our job to spread the gospel message to anyone and everyone. To be a light to everyone we come in contact with. That we would be the hands and feet of Jesus here on earth.


 "And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are preformed through the name of your holy servant Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness." - Acts 4:29-31

I love this passage; it reminds me that when we step out boldly in faith and allow God to use us and speak through us anything is possible. I would encourage you to read the entire chapter of Acts 4, it is filled with wisdom and an amazing story of the might of our God. I love that at the end of this passage we see an entire group of individuals being filled with the Holy Spirit.


Walking out their faith in boldness and living a life that is gentle and full of life. Being the salt and light of the earth. Scripture tells us we are like a city set on a hill, shinning bright for everyone to see. It is a prayer of mine that we would live lives so full and grace and mercy, that we would humbly and gently walk out our faith and share with boldness who our God is!


"I choose gentleness... Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.” - Max Lucado

No matter what may be happening in the world around us remember that you never walk alone, and you have so much to offer this world. You are worth more than gold and precious pearls, as a child of the most high you have so much to offer the world. When others look at you I hope they see an individual that is changed, someone who lives gently and bold. An individual who knows who they are and whose they are. That they would see Christ in you, the hope of glory!


I'm finally beginning to understand what my dad meant when he told me to be gentle and bold and I hope you let this concept sink in and begin to understand it as well. I've said this in the past, but I only repeat it because I really want you all to understand that you can be gentle and kind while still boldly standing firm in your faith and being vocal about what you believe.


Being gentle does not mean you don't stand up for what you believe and be bold and vocal about your values. It simply means you show kindness, love and respect to those around you as you stand up.

 I want to challenge you over the next few weeks to find those moments where you can be the light for those around you. Find those moments where you can let the light be reflected in who you are and let it shine in and through you. The light is a reflection of grace and mercy, so undeserved yet freely given. Light, grace, and truth.




Much Love friends,

Alianna
