Great Quote

I got this twitter the other day that has been on my mind quite a bit. It is a quote from the late D.L. Moody that says “A holy life will produce the deepest impressions. Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.”
I don’t know about you but I want to produce deep impressions on people for Jesus Christ. It isn’t about living a loud life and talking it up but really allowing your light to shine in a dark world. How do we go from a 20, 45, or 65 watt bulb to a shining spotlight that reflects a life that is devoted to Christ? I love what a mentor of mine said to me once and I believe that this is how we grow in that and it is this, “It’s about a passionate pursuit of God and a passionate pursuit of the people He loves.” Are we passionate about God. Is He the first and foremost thing we are thinking of in our lives. Do the people He is longing to come into relationship with matter to us or are we only concerned about ourselves? I want to fulfill the Great Commandment of Loving God and Loving People. We can’t take anything from this life but our relationship with God and the people that know Him. Let us be a people who are lighthouses to the world that shine bright.
