Look closely at the picture of the grass in the lake water.
Exactly where does the grass end and the reflection begin?
So seamless is the connection between the realm of the tangible and the abstract, one can barely distinguish between the two.
Could this compare to what living a Christian life should be?
Is there a clear distinction between how a believer in Jesus thinks and acts at church or church related events and how they act at home, at work or at recreational functions?
Do believers have a "spiritual" life and a separate "secular" one?
If they do, should they?
In the book of 1st Corinthians, chapter 10, we find this instruction:
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (verse 31)
Whatever I do.
Singing in church?
Arranging chairs in a large room for a meeting at work?
Listening to a person I’ve just met on a passenger plane tell me in anguish how they have just lost their spouse?
Being kind to a rude cashier in a busy, bustling store?
Whatever I do.
Whatever you do.
Every element of our lives should be permeated with the presence of God.
What we say, what we do, wherever we are—church, home or work.
When someone looks at us, there should be no distinct line between who we are in Christ and who they see before them.
