Before we can even consider representing Christ, we must have a relationship with him. In Romans 10:9-10, Paul tells us that if we profess Jesus as Lord and believe in our hearts, we will be saved. I have known many who say that professing Jesus as Lord is as simple as saying those words or something similar. But I believe it is much more than that.
To profess Jesus as Lord is to commit your life to his lordship. That means we have to surrender every area of our lives to Him. He is the master of everything. He is Sovereign. We are the servants. Salvation is not a fire insurance policy. It is a commitment of our lives to the one who gave His life for us, Jesus Christ. It is becoming His disciple, taking up our cross, and following Him; that is when we learn how to represent Jesus Christ. (Matthew 16:24).
The way we live our lives is important. People are watching us, looking for some fault that will justify their rejection of the God we serve. Make every effort to live so that the people you contact will see God in you and glorify him. It’s a journey and process.
Will you learn of Him and learn how to represent Him well? I encourage you today to take that step and go along with Jesus to make you represent Him well!
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12).
