Do people see Jesus when they look at you?

1Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 3What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. (Luke 12:1-3)

We must live without any real secrets, because all of them are eventually going to become public -- now, later, or when Jesus' comes. Who we truly are, in the core of our beings, will be on full display when we stand before the Lord. We won't be hiding behind a public persona while hiding a rotten reality or a sinful habit. Let's pray that what people see is a lot more like Jesus each new day than it was the day before.

Peace ad love,


"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. " (1 John 4:9-10)
