A Nation of Heart Generators!

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
One spotlight on a cell phone...what amazing change these simple items can bring to a home when electricity has gone out. While one light does wonders, imagine what a home generator would do! It's the same with our faith and sharing it. It is something special when we experience one coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Hearing a person admit they are without hope in their sin and to ask Christ to forgive them and accept His Spirit to reside within them and be granted eternal life with Christ is truly awesome and unforgettable. As many times as I have prayed with individuals, each time it moves my heart. I have even been known to "sweat from my eyeballs" at times!😪😂 Are we always so moved with compassion for the lost?(Matthew 9:36) In fact, the Bible tells us that angels rejoice when a lost soul comes to know Christ. (Luke 15:10) But what if more would share? What if it wasn't just on a mission trip or a neighborhood outreach? What if it was every CHRISTians desire to have a passion for the lost? What if each of our lifestyles projected the love and forgiveness offered in Christ? What if we were a nation of "flashlights" or "heart generators" for the Lord?
