To Be A Beacon Of God's Love and Grace


When I travel through this blogger sphere I encounter many different kinds of blog sites. Many claiming to be Christian.... many claiming nothing at all... Many blogs I visit I feel right at home...and again some I visit...scare the spit out of me... I try not to stick to the same kind of sites over and over...sometimes I go outside my comfort zone...as I shared not too long ago.. I dared to travel into the atheist zone...silly me...that was so way over my head...I can see how new believers can get confused..but the commonality that I found in most of the atheist sites was the lack of kindness towards Christians... the lack of understanding and tolerance... My biggest impression was the sites were geared towards having unhealthy arguments... and mocking people of faith.. After my one and only encounter..I know better.. just don't say a word...I read some of the posts and it just makes me so sad..Sometimes, I just pray walk through the sites... I know God hears my prayers and I truly believe He is at work on these peoples hearts....He has to be...
There are so many amazing sites.. I have gotten some really good recipes and excellent advise. Discussed my faith and the faith of others. But one common thing I have seen on the sites I love is that they all are a beacon of love and hope for people who enter... That is my true desire...To share the gift of eternal salvation with everyone. I want to be a beacon of God's love and grace to anyone who visits my small spot in Blogger land... Thank you to all the people who have blessed me everyday.....
As Jesus said in Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16)

Beautifully said! How true it is that we, as Christians, have to be a beacon. I pray more now than ever that my words will present Christ. It is SO sad to see the hopeless finality in those who would rather believe God does not exist, or that He does not love any of us enough to sacrifice His Son for us!

I too share your enthusiasm about the "blogger sphere" and find wonderful commonality among believers and seeker and, in some cases, unbelievers. I hope that we who call Jesus Christ Lord, may see this realm as an opportunity to be salt and light in a world of technology.
