Be the Light (Ephesians 5:1-17)Bruce Whitehead, June 14, 2020
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
It will get worse before it will get better. God gave us instruction thru Paul on how to walk thru this world in the darkness. We as Christians should walk carefully thru this world. We should not walk away or hide in a cave. We are called to walk and live amongst the lost, not to partake of what the world is doing. We should be showing the lost the good news of Christ. If a Christian is caught up with the world then they ruin their testimony and have nothing to offer. God has yet to return or call us home because He is not yet done.
Eph 5:17, ask a new Christian what the will of God is and you’ll blow their mind. The will of God is to see the lost saved. The lost need to see God’s light being shown. Who’s job is it to spread His word? It’s every born again Christian. It’s not just the pastors, preachers, deacons, etc. It’s every Christians duty to seek the lost and share the gospel with them.
Do you know what the world needs and is looking for? The world is looking for love and they are looking for it in all the wrong places. It’s the Christians job to show them the love of Christ and that they have hope in Christ. A Christian can’t be about the will of God while they have dirty hands. A Christian should be living their life as a living example of Christ.
If God asked you to share your testimony with someone, could you do it? God can’t use a dirty vessel, are you clean?
