Word : Sold For 50 Pence


Several years ago, a preacher from a distant town accepted a call from a church in Leeds. Some weeks after his arrival, he had an appointment that made him to board a bus to another part of the town. When he sat down,  he discovered
that the driver had mistakenly given him his balance in excess of 50 pence. As he considered what to do, he thought within him, 'You'd  better give this money back. It would be wrong to keep it'. Then another thought came, "Oh, forget it, it's only 50p; who would worry about this little amount, after all the bus company makes so much money on fares; they will never miss it. Accept it  as 'a gift from God' and keep quiet. "When he was getting down from the bus, he paused momentarily at the door, and then handed the 50p to the driver and said, 'Take; the balance you gave me was over'. The driver, with a smile, replied, ‘Aren’t you the new  preacher in town?' 
'Yes I am' he replied. ‘Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about where to go to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I give you balance in excess. I'll worship with you at the church this Sunday. When the preacher stepped off the bus, he grabbed a nearby electric pole, looked up and said, 'Oh God, I almost sold your  Son for 50 pence
Our lifestyles are the only Bible some people will ever read.
This is just a subtle example of how much people watch us as Christians, and will put us to test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry the name of Christ on your forehead and shoulders once you call yourself a Christian.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” {Matt 5:16}

Men are watching us very clearly and closely as children of God and children of the light.
Our light needs to shine, if it is not shining then it is not light but darkness.
So let your light shine enough that people will identify and recognize you with Christ.
Don’t be a secret agent/detective follower or ambassador of Christ.

We should represent God at all time, place , situation as the bible says in {2 Cor 5:20}.
You should often ask yourself the question:
 What will Jesus do in this situation ? If you are sincere with your answer then you will do the right thing.
I Pray you will be good ambassador of Christ; heaven will not loss a single soul because of you lifestyle, dressing, utterance or any actions in Jesus name. Instead your life shall win multitude into heavens and on the day of Judgment there will be lots of testimony of “Thank God ! It was your life that rescued me from destruction” That will be your lot in Jesus name.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
