REPRESENT ME WELL
When people see your life, how well are you reflecting the God of all creation? Are you a reflection of My goodness, kindness and mercy? When you speak, are your words producing life or death? Are the things you set your hand to producing fruit for the Kingdom of God or your kingdom? How well do you love others, especially in the household of faith?
For whether you realize it or not, the world is watching you. Do not be like the pharisees of old and put heavy burdens on others that you yourself are not willing to bear. Instead be like My Son who released life and healing everywhere he went. See the best in people and call them up higher into their destiny, for the world is groping in darkness trying to find the light.
Spend time with Me meditating on My Word and walking in the light of truth. Do not merely memorize My commands but obey them. For knowing the right thing to do and not doing it is sin. Therefore, let your deepest heart's desire be to do My will.
