Secret Servant Saint

Are You An Earthbound, Secret Service Saint?

The object of a Secret Service agent is to go about his mission undetected.  Do people know that you are a Christian by your actions, by your lifestyle, by your words?  Or do you slip in and slip out without being noticed? 

There are times when we are so excited that we want to share what God has done in our life.  And at other times it seems we keep it all to ourselves. We don't intentionally hold back, we just feel we’re too busy.  If I could just find more time, etc. The enemy will do everything he can to keep you so busy that you don't have time to spend with the Lord or share what God has done in your life.  Don't let him win!

If you watched the news lately you likely watched the California fires slowly creeping in to destroy homes.  Satan does the same thing. He creeps in slowly.  Often times the signs are not visible until it's too late.  And with the blink of an eye it can all be over in a flash.  And there won't be time to repent.  We have to tell people about Christ before it's too late as their lives are slowly being destroyed.  If we don't tell them, who will?  We need to be about God's business speaking the truth to everyone we meet. 

People can read us like a book so let's be a living Bible for them to read.  They need to see Jesus in us. But they also need to hear us speak about the wonderful things He does and can do.  Openly share this amazing love of God and how He can change lives.

We have some extraordinarily good news to tell. News that will make a difference in people's lives. Share with them how He has changed yours.  Tell them how you were before you came to know the Lord and how your life has changed.  Tell them how God works in your life every day.  How He is always there to help you, guide you and teach you have to live a victorious life. He's still in the life changing business.  If we don’t’ tell them, who will? 

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."  Matthew 28:19-20

We do have a mission and it’s not Mission Impossible.  With God all things are possible.  His message will NOT self-destruct.
