A reflection on being a witness to Christianity

Reflections for the day

You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp put it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5: 14-16

If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow him. For those who want to save their life will lose it and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel will save it.

Mark 8: 34

We waste most of our time trying to get God to do something He has already done—or praying for God to do something He told us to do. –Jacquelyn K. Heasley


A reflection on being a witness for Christianity

Heavenly Father,

It is at this time we reflect upon the ministry of your son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed to all Mankind a purpose of a ministry was to fulfil a law and to uphold a word spoken by a prophet. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Sermon on the Mount defined the role of a Christian. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, decreed there is a need to proclaim the word that is of yours. We are able to see in a way that is clear that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, commanded your disciple Peter, to build your church which upholds your name on a foundation that is secure.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, spoke of a city built on a hill that cannot be hid. We acknowledge that you call all Mankind to be what is described as the light of your world, and the light of your world is one that reflects the glory of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and a light such as this is one that reveals to all Mankind the love that is there for all.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that a work that is good will be seen by another, and a work that is good is one that will glorify yourself. Heavenly Father, your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came into your world in order to save all Mankind from sin, and in order to show all the way to you, and a truth that is yours, and a life with yourself which is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide all Mankind in a daily life. We are able to see in a way that is clear that an attendance at church that is regular on a basis that is weekly, and a prayer that is proffered on a basis that is daily and throughout the day, will allow a self to be nourished in a way that is spiritual. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that your Church is a landmark in a way that is spiritual, and in a way that is physical, and we acknowledge that an attendance at your Church on a basis that is weekly will allow all Mankind to be able to perceive, and to be able to discern, that is a desire of yourself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that much has been said in the media about a practice of Christianity, and about an observance of a Christian Faith. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire for a practice of the Christian Faith to be visible. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that to follow your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, all must deny much that is in your world that we live in, and that to gain a life that is eternal with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, there is a need to put aside all that is worldly that is abhorrent to you.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that a symbol of the cross is one which upholds all of a faith of Christianity, and is a symbol that is fitting, and is a symbol which reminds many that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died upon a cross, in order to save all Mankind from sin, and in order to show all Mankind the way to you, and in order for a forgiveness to be made if a sorrow for a sin is proffered and a will is evident to incur a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many desire to show all a difference your Son, Our Jesus Christ, makes in a life. We hope and we pray that many will desire to uphold your name in a way that is fitting. We hope and we pray that all Mankind will reflect carefully upon the teachings of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and is able to see your purpose in a life.

Heavenly Father, we uphold all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and your Holy Spirit, is a redeemer of all sin, and sitteth on the right side of you, Our Heavenly Father, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Christianity has appeared in the media recently, sometimes for the wrong reasons. This is sad but it appears that some politicians are ignoring the teachings of Christ and , by doing so, are making those who follow Christianity appear vulnerable. Christians are entitled to Human Rights as much as any other person and should not be pushed into the background. It is hoped that there will be more people returning to attend their local church , as I have done, to assist in its revival and demonstrate the right way of living.
