Luke 2:34-35 "This child (Jesus) is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed.” (NIV)
This prophecy about Jesus is a prophecy that continues today. It not only continues, but also should occur in greater proportion. John 14:12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” Every follower of Christ should be used by God to reveal the hearts of others. You reveal the hearts of others when the life of Jesus is reflected through you. God’s character and love should be so appealing to others that they are drawn to Him through you. In addition to living the walk, you should also be sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and the truths of His kingdom. God wants you to be bold in representing Christ. God wants to use your life and words through the work of the Holy Spirit in opening the hearts of others to receive His truth that they too may experience the fullness of Christ’s love for them! John 16:7-8 “But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” God wants to use you as His vessel for drawing others to Him. Are you willing to be faithful to His legacy and available for His use? Begin each day seeking God’s opportunities and divine appointments to be used as His point person in liberating the hearts of others to receive the truth and abundance of His kingdom!
1 Peter 2:9-10 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.“ (NIV)
