August 20–Wearing and Writing for the LORD

A lot of people—both men and women—wear crosses around their necks. Some of these crosses are simple, some ornate, some delicate, some heavy, some hold deep, sentimental meaning. But all of them, whether intentionally done by the wearer or not, point to the place of sacrifice where our Lord Jesus wore and bore the weight of our sins—so that we may be forgiven and have eternal life.

Others will have Scripture verses written out in their homes, on stationery, on screen-savers, on bumper stickers and even on candy-wrappers.

This is all good…and can absolutely be ways to live as God’s child and witness to others. But! We must be sure that our actions, our very lives, are what truly wear and write out our testimony to our Holy God. 

Let love and faithfulness never leave you;

bind them around you neck,

write them on your heart.

Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:3-4

What are you wearing and writing for the LORD? Let God’s love and faithfulness be what people see and read in you…and receive from you!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
