As Christ following women, it should not be our goal to see how many women we can get to attend our event or Bible study. We should not strive to read every self-help book there is. We can’t focus on making sure our outsides appear “holy” when our insides need a complete overhaul. No, what our focus should be is representing Jesus well to a lost and dying world.
Notice I said representing Jesus well. Not perfectly, but well. And what that entails is that we have to know Him well so that we can represent Him well. It’s really very simple: Do the things that Jesus would have done.
The world is full of needs and if our focus is on this world of hurting hearts, we may not take a step to help someone. But, what if we took Andy Stanley’s advice and “did for one what we wished we could do for everyone”? Wouldn’t that be amazing?
- I can’t feed every homeless person in the world, but I can offer a meal to someone in need.
- I can’t pay the electric bill of every needy friend I have, but I can pay someone’s.
- I can’t meet the needs of every hurting single mom, but I can reach out a be a friend to one.
Let’s do our best to be Jesus to someone. Let’s represent Him well so that this world will know that He is good.
Do you ever find yourself wondering how you can reflect Jesus? What are some ways that He is asking you to step out in faith today to begin?
