Simple Choices

Romans 10:13 For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 14 But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? 15 And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

We are the hands and feet of Christ in this world.  We are charged with taking the message of Christ to our community, our places of work and recreation.  Our life should bear witness to Christ living within us.   Each decision that we make each day should reflect Christ in us.  Simple decisions over and over again create a life style of faith.

A few weeks ago Will receive Student of the Day.  A teacher witnessed him pick up a dollar that fell out of another student’s book bag.  He flagged the other student down a returned the dollar.  Will never knew that anyone was watching.  He was not doing it for recognition or praise.  He was making a simple choice to live in a way that was morally upstanding and reflective of his beliefs.  As a middle-schooler, he was excited to receive the praise, but that was not his motivation.  This simple choice reflected a way of life.  Simple choices add up to our live styles and witness to the condition of our hearts, for good or bad.

As we walk through each day, we make simple choices that bear witness to Christ within us.  May we live as people worthy to be called Christ Followers!
