Truth for Today
Philemon 1:5 5 hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints,
May others see Jesus in YOU!
I had a man tell me once, “My faith is personal and I keep it to myself.”
My first thought, “Hmmm...what verse from scripture supports that view?” Unfortunately sometime we live like our faith is personal. The silence in God’s Church can be deafening. We have so many opportunities to share our faith and our love with others but we shut down the faucet.
Paul was writing a personal and powerful letter to a beloved friend. He commends his friend for “hearing of your love and faith toward the Lord Jesus”.
Philemon didn’t keep his faith private. His love and faith toward Jesus rang out over valleys and mountains. He wasn’t ashamed of his LORD.
BELIEVER…may your love and faith toward the Lord Jesus ring out in your world. I pray that you have sincere love for Jesus. I pray that faith in HIM grows and abounds more and more. I pray that “others see Jesus in you”.
May others see Jesus in YOU!!!
Father, change my heart O God…may others see the change YOU are making in my life…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
