Grant & Theunisina Neyt – July JOY! Article
– by Grant & Theunisina Neyt
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” – Mahatma Gandhi. It may seem out of place to use a quote from someone who was not a Christian in this article. However, this quote begs the question; does my verbal testimony line up with my lifestyle, as seen by unbelievers? There is another saying: actions speak louder than words. There is a lost and dying world outside the four walls of the church, waiting for us to reflect the reality of Christ.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.” – Matthew 5:16. In this Scripture, Jesus encourages us that our lives and our actions so reflect Him that people will be drawn to God. Today, as we share our testimonies in order to win people to Christ, let it be done with both our words and our actions. We must never lose sight that we are commanded by Christ to go into all the world and demonstrate His love. This is Christ’s most urgent call. Don’t delay. GO!
