Our faith is the light , it cannot be hidden except to be made manifest by our tests, trials, life itself, disappointments, illness, pain, or suffering. That secret time with God, praying, reading His word, trusting Him with all authority, and submitting to Him in all things, is when secret faith comes into the light.
It sometimes comes in the strangest moments. We are going through a routine day and a person intersects our path that is irritated, downcast, or perhaps visibly upset. We see the struggle of the person to maintain their composure, to hold tightly to every ounce of control they can muster.
Yet, the pain is visible. I believe the apathy Christians are accused of is not reaching out to people in these moments. A work environment may not seem like the appropriate place to approach someone with a scripture verse or offer of prayer.
But that is exactly what they need most, and the mostly likely place our light can shine. The power of God’s word and a loving vehicle in which it is delivered. You and me. So, offer to pray with someone hurting, depressed, or who is having a bad day. They may say no, and that’s OK, your sincerity of heart and compassion planted a seed that God will nourish and grow.
