Everyone who calls themselves a Christian is in essence a teacher of the faith, because we represent God to the outside world. What we say and do is a testimony to our faith and beliefs. To honour our Heavenly Father’s great love and compassion for all mankind, let us represent Jesus well to all our family and friends.
John 14:26 ESV But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
A prayer to be a living testimony of Jesus Christ
“Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this day. I praise you for who You made me to be, where You have placed me, and the people You have surrounded me with. I pray that I learn to soak in Your steadfast love and mercies each day.
Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Let me imitate Christ’s humility and practice sacrificial love today, considering others before myself so as to bring You glory.
Philippians 2:3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Show me how to walk humbly and triumphantly in Your ways, because You have called me to be a peacemaker who brings the gospel of peace wherever I go. Let me be someone who brings the fragrant aroma of Christ to those who do not yet know you.
2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.
I pray that Your peace follows me wherever I go and that I remember to keep myself blameless in all my steps. This is only possible through Your Holy Spirit that strengthens me, so may my entire spirit and mind be soaked in Your love, grace and peace.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let me not limit what You may do through me through unbelief or fear. Thank you, Jesus, that You even promised that I may do greater works than You because Your Holy Spirit lives in me. I will not rely on my own abilities, but Yours.
John 14:12 ESV “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
Thank you for all that You will do through my life today.
In Jesus’ name, amen.”
