Making God look good.

…to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive. For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. ‭‭Titus‬ ‭2:10-11‬

Dear Savior,

You have redeemed me from sin, from the devil, from all that would destroy me. You have poured out your Holy Spirit on me and he is now working in me. You have called me to a new life, to live for you in this world and to give you glory in all that I think, say and do. And yet I know that my way of life doesn’t always make you look good. I’ve often been a cause for the disgracing of your holy name. I wonder how many people have been turned off to your teaching because of my way of life. I haven’t made you shine by the way that I live. I’m sorry, Father. Forgive me for the shame and disgrace that I’ve brought to the family. Forgive me for the shame and the disgrace that I’ve brought to you. Forgive me and help me this day to do all that I can with my way of life to make you look good, to make your teaching attractive. Help me get out of the way of the gospel so that in all things I bring your glory and draw people to the gospel by the way I live my life.

Amen.

When we let our light shine by living as God’s people, we make God’s Word attractive and draw people to hear it.
