In life, there are no certainties, as each day on earth involves a plethora of possibilities. Whether good, bad or indifferent, blessings and curses usually come and go like an endless cycle. Nonetheless, when faith is the issue, you shouldn’t have to ask someone where they stand; this should be obvious.
The example Jesus uses can be found in his Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:13-16. Faith is compared with salt, adding flavor to one’s life by preserving the soul through mediating, reading and reflecting on the Bible, Joshua 1:8. Subsequently, faith should ignite hearts toward action, illuminating the love of God through deeds, a Christ like example and encouraging words.
According to the apostle Paul, gifts, personalities and talents vary, Romans 12:6-8. Thus, being outspoken and vocal is not essential. Rather, faith should compel individuals to demonstrate their commitment for Jesus on a regular basis, 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12. By displaying faith, co-workers, family members and neighbors should be drawn to you, pondering, “something is different about him or her?” You shouldn’t have to ask me, you should see this little light of mine shine daily.
