Healing · Hope · Transparent · Witness

unless we are transparent…

I challenged her when she came in the shop to pick up Bible study material…

We talked about the importance of having a safe place for Believers to witness to one another about faith… share the things He’s done in our lives… even the hard things… our own sin… others’ sins against us… and how He’s used it… healed it…

She said… That’s the stuff I shove to the back…

I said… Unless we are transparent… others can’t see Jesus in us…

Unless we are transparent… open… about our lives…
past struggles… failures… abuses…
others can’t see where He’s walked us through to the other side…

Unless we are transparent… open… about our lives…
current struggles… failures… abuses…
others can’t offer… their stories of healing…

The next day… after I challenged her…
an opportunity came… for Him to challenge me…
Be transparent

I failed to seize the moment…
but the challenge is planted…
and I’m sure… I will… take the step to…
be… transparent…

Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:27 ESV
