Your faith is not a private issue. Yes it is personal but cannot be private. Why?
Because the living out publicly of your faith may well be the catalyst to another person realising that they need Jesus. As you live out your faith it is the public display of the love, the power and the grace that is freely given to all mankind.
Let’s not rob those around us of the opportunity to experience what we know as salvation and God’s goodness. We need to show these people that they can have peace with God – because Jesus has authority on earth to forgive sins and to wipe the page of our spiritual life. That is how we know we have peace with God.
But we need to live out personal faith in the public arena! Faith is not the lever to get what you want; but faith will release what you need.
