Inside Out

It it is the unseen and the spiritual in people that determines the outward and actual. ~           Oswald Chambers

The other day someone told me that she wished everyone was like me.  Her friend agreed.  I was shocked.  I'm not exactly sure who they know, but I surely felt it wasn't me.  After all, I know myself and often times feel like my witness, the words I speak and my expressions toward others is less than perfect or desired by the Lord. I thanked them for their kind words and walked away.  Oh oh....immediate conviction.  I had forgotten to give credit where credit was due.  I returned to them and said that I could not leave without telling them who they were seeing, who was Jesus Christ in me.  Much to my surprise, it was well received.  Their comment?  Keep it up, it shows.  I am so thankful Jesus Christ dwells in me and that people are drawn to what's inside of me and not my outward actions.  ~ Susan B.
