Does Jesus show well through you?

The other night at our annual church conference, Pastor I. I. reported that about half of our High Point Burmese congregation are not believers.  As I have struggled with my role with those who do not know Christ among the Burmese community, I reference the months and years invested by missionaries for centuries to reach out and show Christ incarnate to other people groups.

My son, Nathan, passed along this link to a reflection on what our heart attitude should be toward those among us who are aligned with other religions.  Let Jesus show himself through your life is the theme of Red Letters by Tom Davis.   When we listen to God through His word and the promptings of the Holy Spirit we can help God make the difference He desires in this world and in the souls of each and every person alive.

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
