“For the word of the Lord has sounded forth from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God has gone forth, so that we have no need to say anything” (1 Thessalonians 1:8).
What kind of fellowship do you extend to others? Are you known as one who follows the Lord? We all have a reputation. The question is, what is yours? Will others say that you follow the Lord? Is it obvious? These are important questions to ponder, for who we really are comes from deep within. Are you one who belongs to the Lord? Is that being reflected in your everyday life?
Lord, help me to always be consistent. Guide me in the goodness of Your mercy and grace so that others will know who I am by what I say and how I act. Help me to live out this gift of faith You have given me. Lead me in Your goodness so that it is You alone whom I care about pleasing. Let Your Word dwell richly and deeply in me and come out through all I do in order that You may be known to others through me.
Lord Jesus, You have come so that I may be given the power to become a child of the Heavenly Father. You know all that is needed and You have provided the means for me to reach that goal. Guide me this day so I may do all that is needed. Help me live out my life of faith so that I may be consistent in witness, faithful in what I do, and reflect Your love to a world that needs to hear the Gospel. Amen.
