That the world doesn't even know what they are missing.
What happens to something when it is magnified?
- It grows larger
- It is more easily seen
- It is better understood
- It is more easily believable
What is your light?
- Through your actions
- How you exalt Christ
- How you become less
What makes you different is Christ
1 Peter 4:11
If anyone serves they should do so with the strength God provides
What does it look like to live a life that magnifies Christ?
- Unconditional love
- Encouragement and courage
- Doing what others won't
- Swimming against the current
- Living a life with a purpose
It is going to take commitment
To live with a Godly purpose
To be ready at a moments' notice to speak Christ or to Love as God loves.
*** God loves us so that we can take that love and give it to others. ***
God loves without any consideration about the loveliness or merit of the object
Love as God loves in all situations
It has to start with you
It has to start with your commitment to God
Are you ready?
To walk by faith and consider God in every situation
We all have an eternal purpose; we just have to start living like it
How can I speak more of Him and less of me?
- Be the magnifying glass
- Set the standard
- Seek conversations and actions that point to Him
- Show others what they don't even know they are missing
Challenge: Magnify Christ this week in everything that you do. Every action, every word, think "He must become greater, I must become less."
