“What a friend we have in Jesus…” we always sing with joy and excitement. But, have we realized what we are saying to the world by singing that song? All who have seen us, Christians, should see Jesus Christ because we have the Holy Spirit, the spirit of Christ, in us. We are the embodiment of the character of Christ.
The character of Christ is in the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and those fruits are LOVE, PEACE, JOY, HAPPINESS, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, PATIENCE, LONG SUFFERING, SELF CONTROL, GENTLENESS, – Galatians 5:22,23. But rather unfortunate, we are boastful, proud, sexually immoral, gluttons, impatient, jealous, quick to anger, lustful, sad, hopeless, not trustworthy, liars, cheaters, slanderers, gossips, and all the traits of the enemy, satan.
Inasmuch as Christ wants to speak to the world through our songs, testimonies, circumstances, and more especially our lives and ways, the world is also eager to see the character of our Lord Jesus Christ in us everyday.
Let us endeavour to with boldness show the world Christ, our friend, for the world to show us our character by virtue of the friendship we have with Him. Help us Lord. Amen!
