Once you've surrendered your life to Jesus, He'll want to start using you right away to spread His message of hope and salvation.
"Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them." (Isaiah 43:7)
Have you surrendered yet? If not, there's no time like the present (Romans 10:9-10). If you have, are you living a life where God "can" use you yet?
Upon receiving Christ, the Holy Spirit will begin a lifetime of shaping and molding your thoughts and actions.
"Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand." (Isaiah 64:8)
The key is to let Him continue to transform you, and not fall back into your old sinful habits.
"If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work." (2 Timothy 2:21)
There are so many people living in darkness that God desires your new life to be one that exemplifies His goodness, and will attract those lost souls to Him.
"No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a bowl or hides it under a bed. A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house." (Luke 8:16)
Are you living a life that will attract others to Christ?
In EVERYTHING you do, big or small, do your very best.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters." (Colossians 3:23)
Remember that not only are other people watching you, but so is your Creator.
Acknowledge at all times the gift of salvation you received via the sacrifice of your Lord and Savior. Praise His name on all occassions and in every circumstance, as it is He, not you, that make ALL things possible.
Be the lamp God wants you to be and give Him the glory as He works through you from this day forward.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31)
