I am convinced it’s not the dramatic stories, trials and testimonies where our Lord most often chooses to show Himself through us but in the common, every day living.
So often, we miss holy opportunities waiting for the big event, the mission trip, or the planned church program.
But so often holy moments, with eternal consequences, come hidden in the mundane, the routine, the most regular of days and in the interruptions to our plans and the irritating people along our way.
Do we look different then?
Do others see Jesus in us when we aren’t all fixed, off the stage, or in the ditch?
Will they want what we have, will they see the Savior in us, when we are caught unrehearsed in the ordinary days of this life?
Though they may not know what they are looking for, others are watching us—in this day, while we do our lists and just live our lives.
This normal, ordinary day is a day someone could be drawn to the Light of Jesus in us.
May we not forget in the “normal days” that we always walk among captives who desperately need to know the Savior who set us free.
“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart (every day)
be acceptable in your sight,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.”
Oh friends, may we see Him, may we see the holy moments in this day, and may we be found faithful.
