Wordless Sermons

You might have heard this quote: “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.” (Attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, 12th Century, Italy) The implication of the saying is that all Christians (not just ministers or church leaders) are always sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ by the way they live. How is my preaching? And yours?Jesus said it most effectively: “You are the salt of the earth….You are the light of the world….Let your light shine before people….”(Matthew 5: 13-16). How are we doing with our daily deportment? Are our attitudes and actions revealing a God of grace, goodness, and exemplary principles? Can people we live with, work with, and play with, sense that we help transform their lives from saltless to flavorful and from darkness to light, just by being ourselves?Maybe, at the end of each day, it would be good to reflect on how we preached the gospel that day, and ways we could do better the next day. You see, some people you live with, work with, and play with, may never enter a church building. You alone might be the ambassador of Christ to them. I pray that you preach very well. –Jeba Moses
