If God is bigger...

This is a story about a little girl who, on the way home from church, turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the preacher's sermon this morning confused me."

The mother said, "Oh! Why is that?"

The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?"

"Yes, that's true," the mother replied.

"He also said that God lives within us. Is that true, too?"

Again the mother replied, "Yes."

"Well," said the girl. "If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"

I read this story recently and it really made me think.  How true the statement about God ‘showing through!’  Truly, if God is bigger than us (and He is!) and if God lives in us (and if we are born again, He does!)  then shouldn’t He show through?  I believe that this is an honest question and we should each ask ourselves, “Does God show through MY life?”  The Bible tells us that in everything we do we should do it as unto the Lord.  If we live up to that command, then I believe that God will definitely ‘show through’ our life.  God bless each of you and remember “Walk the walk of the talk you talk so well!”

This is so good. Yes, God should always shine through us for others to see. The more that people see Jesus in us the more will want what we have.

Blessings to you and love you.
