Last week was my birthday (I shall not say how old) ; )
It got me thinking, What am I doing to spread the Gospel? What more can I do? Is God being glorified through my life? Do others see Christ through me?
I pray that I will grow more like Christ every day God gives me, and that I would glorify God.

Here are two pictures

"And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. And again, Isaiah saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust."
Romans 15:9-12

Praise the Lord!!
