Those of us, who call ourselves Christians, are to be the shining light of hope and inspiration to the world. We may be the only scripture that some people will ever read. We need to live our lives in such a manner that others will see the light of Christ through us. People may be impressed by our ability to express our thoughts through eloquence of speech, but they will be even more impressed by the way we live our lives as living testimonies of the things that we say and teach.
Christ taught his disciples not only by word but by example. He demonstrated by His living how they should live before their heavenly Father.
Jesus not only “told” but provided the perfect example of how we as God’s children should live before our heavenly Father and fellow man.
