You Are Irresistible!

And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. (Acts 6:8,10)

We need to realize how often we affect those around us just by our expressions and attitude. It is amazing to think about how contagious our attitudes and behaviors can be to others. As Christians, we are to be lights in this dark world. We are called to share the good news of Jesus Christ and to proclaim His love, joy and peace to everyone. If we truly have His Spirit, as Stephen did, then we will be irresistible to those listening to us.

Think about your behavior and attitude today as you go about your activities, especially how you express yourself. A smile goes a long way, and there is something contagious about laughter. Before you start your day, stop and ask the Lord to fill you with His wisdom and Spirit. Ask for His joy to be your strength and for His peace to prevail over all of your circumstances. And, if you keep smiling long enough, eventually people will want to know your secret. Then you get to tell them all about Jesus because He is truly the only reason any of us can smile and have real joy.

When I read this it blessed me. We all need to be reminded of this from time to time. Life can get heavy and situation bombard us emotionally and without even thinking we walk around with our candle half light, some of us are so negative and although we truly love God, we are not showing any signs of life, life that God gives us each and every day. We have a reason to say every single day, no matter what we are facing or have faced, this is the day which the Lord hath made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. Make today beautiful!! Let your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile.

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
