Welcome to “In His Praise”
We live in a lost and fallen world and things seem to be getting worse all the time. What are Christians to do when it seems the news is filled with nothing but bad news? What are we to do when it seems that all we hear about is violence, anger and destruction. Evil is running rampant in our world today. It may seem that good people are out numbered and have no voice. But don’t lose hope, there is good news!
Matthew 5:14-16 says, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they will see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
God sees and He knows about all the wrong in today’s world, but He is counting on Christians to be His light to those that do not know Him. It is our responsibility to go about promoting good, setting a Godly example and sharing the gospel with those that do not know our Lord and Savior.
These verses do not call us to travel great distances or to make eloquent speeches.They do not tell us to make signs and march around and shout at others. They simply tell us to let God shine through in all we do and in so doing, others will begin to praise the Lord too.
So when you feel the news of the day getting you down or causing you to feel helpless, remember, we just need to stand firm in our belief and stay focused on giving God first place in our lives. Let His love shine through in all our actions. We have a Mighty God that will take our small efforts for Him and turn them into great blessings for others, and one soul at a time will be won to Christ.
