1 Corinthians 13:5 – Or do you not realise about yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you?
So last week Bradley and I had our pre-wedding photo shoot. It was so much fun and photos turned out to be amazing! I was snapchatting a few of them, and a couple of the girls in our youth group replied saying “Mieke, you and Bradley are #GOALS!”
Initially it made me laugh, and obviously it was a great ego boost (can’t lie). But then the more I thought about it, I realised that that is exactly what God placed each of us on earth to be! God wants His followers to be goals, because we are the window to Him. So that anyone who looks at us from the outside, who doesn’t know Jesus Christ, will be able to see who He is through us.
They need to see Jesus in us when we’re happy, when life is great. They need to see Jesus in us when life is tough, and every day is difficult. They need to see Jesus in our relationships. They need to see Jesus in our friendships, our family, our workplace, our church, our Friday nights and our Sunday mornings. The world so desperately needs Jesus and we need to be the ones to let Him shine through!
So let it be your mission today to be #goals to anyone looking at your life. Show that them you have Jesus Christ in you and your life is more than great. You have Jesus and because of that you have joy, freedom, peace, forgiveness, love and a whole lot of grace.
