Seize the Moment – Day 210

A Billboard of God’s Glory!

2 Corinthians 4


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Tuesday, October 13.


Your life is a billboard in lights!


Listen to 2 Corinthians 4:6-7, “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.”


God’s presence changes you and by design, the mystery of God is made known through you because the Holy Spirit now dwells in you—God has redeemed your life for an even greater purpose—to put on display something other than yourself. What a mystery and what grace!


This is the most liberating truth in the world; a balm to my soul. If I was the point of the story and my perfection were the point of the story, then what bondage I would experience as a Christian. But I am not the point; it is the treasure that has been placed in me that is the point!


The pressure is not on me to polish the outside of the vessel (to whitewash and cover it up), but to show the surpassing power that belongs to God and has been placed in my life by His grace and for His glory! Simply: I am to be a billboard of God’s glory!


It’s a humbling thought, but maybe God chose me and you so that other people would see us and think to themselves—if God could save a wretch like that, then He can love me too.


Seize the moment and shine the glory of God that has been given to you! God’s precious gift has been given to you to be put on display for all to see. Not hoarded as your private ticket to heaven, but heralded as God’s billboard of His Presence in the world.


Have a wonderful day as you live in God’s amazing grace!
