Wouldn’t God Shine Through?

As a daily lift, or encouragement – for years I’ve subscribed to something called “Mikey’s Funnies” – church related, spirituality related humour… and other stuff.

Today however the one I got, not only gave me a giggle, but a pause to consider – to which I share openly this day:

This is a story about a little girl who, on the way home from church, turned to her mother and said, “Mommy, the Preacher’s sermon this morning confused me.”

The mother said, “Oh! Why is that?”
The girl replied, “Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?”
“Yes, that’s true,” the mother replied.
“He also said that God lives within us. Is that true, too?”
Again the mother replied, “Yes.”
“Well,” said the girl. “If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn’t He show through?”

Huh.

How do you feel about that?

Have you ever looked around at the “Christians” in our world, only to wonder what obvious, outward expression would lead me to believe that they are who they say they are – or that they actually follow the person that they say they follow?

But far be it from us -and me for that matter- to point fingers at anyone for not FULLY living an expressive life for Jesus!  Don’t I do the same thing?  Say that God is big, say that God lives in me – and I should wonder at the words of this little girl, do people see Him in me?

Food for thought – for myself today – and for all of us.

If our God is BIG.  If our God LIVES in US.  Can other’s see Him?
