“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God’s own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and DISPLAY the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1Peter 2:9AMP
As I was reading this particular scripture this morning the word display really resonated with me. It prompted me to think about what I, as a woman of God, put on display. As God’s chosen people, women of God, we are called to display the perfections of Him who called us out of darkness, His marvelous light, His works, the very Essence of Him.
I pictured myself as a “window display” for God and began to take an inventory. Am I, are you, displaying the virtues of God? When others look into my window do they see the Fruits of The Spirit..love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control? Am I clothed in compassion, tender hearted mercy and humility? What do people see when they pass me by, can they see that I have been called out of darkness and into His marvelous light? I hope and pray so.
My friends, I have been in the dark, in the pit where He pursued me, pulled me out, bloody, scraped, and raw into His marvelous Light, cleaned me up and clothed me in a Robe of Righteousness. I want others to see and experience His Light, to know Him and love Him. That means I need to look into the mirror and see what is in my window display, daily taking an inventory, so others are drawn to Him.
I pray that you as well as myself will be challenged today to take a look into your “window display” and take an inventory.
