He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. Mark 4:21-22
As Christians we are called to be The light of the world, so its important we don’t hide our faith or our talents God has blessed us with. You might say I don’t want to draw attention to myself, but that’s the whole point. God made you a light of this world to attract people to his Word not be ignored.
God didn’t design you to be hidden, not to be a closet Christian. God wants you to be his hands and feet and show Christ living thru you. What good does it having talents giving by God if you never use them?
If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.” Mark 4:23
Many times were hesitant to talk about God to others but there are many longing to hear the Good Word. When you know the love and sacrifice Jesus has giving us, its hard not only contain that hope but its also our duty to make disciples of all the nations.
“Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you–and even more. Mark 4:24
We should always be slow to speak and quick to listen, but be careful what your listening to. There are many who are either spreading false gospel or don’t really know the true gospel. That’s why its important for us to know The Bible, How can you teach others if you don’t really know yourself?
Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” Mark 4:25
Our riches are not in the world they are in Heaven, don’t be working for The Lord looking for great riches here on Earth. You will be rewarded by God when your mission is done. So don’t get discouraged that nobody is rewarding you , because God knows all the work you have done.
Remember to be The Light of the World, we are The Children of The light and not darkness. Don’t hide your faith and hope we have thru Jesus Christ Amen
