Verse of the Day-Matthew 3:8

I came across this verse during my devotions this morning and it’s so crazy how I’ve read this verse over and over before but never really thought about its meaning until today.

Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God

Matthew 3:8, NLT

If we’re going to be followers of Christ we must show it in our actions and words. We need others to see Jesus in us. How else are they going to come to know Christ?

If they see us acting no different than the world they are just going to assume that’s how we’re supposed to live. We become hypocrites.

We must be a light to the world so that the world sees Jesus.

You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden

Matthew 5:14, NLT
