Time to Shine
The parable of the talents: Matthew 25:14-30
We live in an age of advanced technology that allows us to be witnesses for Christ in a very public manner. But some Christians are concealing what they post on social networks [or partially concealing] by the use of privacy settings. The Bible says: a city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (Matthew 5:14) So, the question is, what are you hiding?
There is a lost and dying world out there. Believers should be living a life that is worthy of their calling. If you are sinning, you need to stop. If you are having problems or hurting etc., then you need to ask God for help so that you may overcome (1 John 5:4). Believers should be serving the Lord with boldness, sharing His love openly, and reaching as many souls as possible.
Stop hiding and start shining! ℛℒ
