Reasons for living

There are many reasons why God made us who we are and gave us the characters we have. We are all different and the experiences we go through change us and mould us into even more intricate and unique people. We all have a soul and a spirit which need to be filled by God, otherwise we are left feeling that there is a gap in ourselves which we try so hard to fill with anything we think will help.
God wants us to be shaped more like Him. To see us becoming more like Him as we grow and continue our walk with Him over our life. We do change and we do become more Christlike even if we can’t see the change. Others will see the difference in us, and the changes in behaviours. This is a big influence on those round us. If we act more like Christ, they will be pulled into better behaviours and actions as we take more of a stand with how we act. It has more of a impact than we may realise. We need to be constantly checking our actions and words to make sure we do not lead others astray. We are accountable for our actions towards each other and how we influence those who are not believers. We might be the only thing about Christianity they see, the only part of the Gospel they witness.
The very best part of us lives on well after our death, but also the very worst in us. What we do now will be carried on to the next generation and possibly the generation after them also. It is so important that only the very best of our actions and behaviours are left after we have gone. How sad is it that so many are only remembered for the bad things they did, the mistakes they made and then didn’t correct. I don’t want my kids or grandkids to only know when I did something stupid. I want them to remember that I followed my Lord with all my heart and to know that I did my best, I took my stand on what I believe, and for them to be proud of what God did through me.

    So true, our actions are very powerful. Most of my friends don’t use bad language around me – or apologize when they do – I’ve never ever said a word to them, never chastised or corrected them for their foul language at all, but I just don’t use it. I never have, but I’ve never made a big deal of it, either. But my actions, have been seen by them and they react to it. It’s kinda cool!
    Amazing what we can do as we show Christ through our actions!
