The Life

Your life may be the only Bible some people read. ~ Author Unknown

Confession: I’m a quote addict. I read lists of quotes, re-quote quotes, post quotes on social media and keep a long  and growing list in my Facebook info. When I posted the above quote on Facebook, it was *Like*d within seconds and *Like*d repeatedly. It’s not a profound concept by any means, and its message is very straightforward and pointed.

You’re being watched. You’re being observed. You’re being read.

If you talk the talk of a “Christian,” your walk and your steps are being followed and noted. When you trip and/or fall down, your book may get closed and put on a shelf by the reader. Your life is a mirror, reflecting your Heavenly Father. Keep the smudges and dust wiped off. Tall order – I know.

There’s also a song that runs right along this same context: You’re the Only Jesus. Once again, it’s a simple and profound concept – life isn’t about you. It’s all about HIM.

If not in you, I wonder where,
Will they ever see the One who really cares.
If not in you, how will they find
The One who heals the broken hearts and gives sight to the blind.

(chorus)
‘Cause you’re the only Jesus some will ever see
And you’re the only words of life some will ever read.
So let them see in you the One in Whom is all they’ll ever need.
You’re the only Jesus some will ever see.

If not in you I wonder who,
Will show them love and love alone can make things new.
If not in you how will they find
The one who’ll trade their brokenness 
And give joy in return.

(chorus)
‘Cause you’re the only Jesus some will ever see
And you’re the only words of life some will ever read.
So let them see in you the One in whom is all they’ll ever need.
You’re the only Jesus some will ever see.

Can you imagine the impact that Christian everywhere would have if we all strived to let God shine through us? Can you imagine what it would be like if we all lived consistently as though we realized that we may be the only Jesus someone may ever experience?
