This bloggy entry is taken from MBC's blog in 2006 and it's still relevant!
Lately, in Malaysia, there are some discussions that touched on race and religion which have created some discomfort among many. By and large, Malaysia have been spared from many natural calamities and also some race and religious turmoils that happened elsewhere. All these attributed to none other than God's grace! If everyone takes it for granted and continue to argue and fight, then the consequences will be terrible!
It's time for Christians to roll up our sleeves and show the way! We are the light of the world and as we shine, darkness has to go! How do we shine? The same as Jesus did! Demonstrate love even when there are so much hatred. Show kindness when people don't deserve it. People just don't care what you say when they know that you don't care! Treat others as you want others to treat you. Do you like to be treated kindly? Then be kind to others. Do you like to be cheated? Then deal honestly with others!
What Jesus is saying to each of us is change the world around you! Did you make a difference in your family? Did you change the way your friends look at God? You see, Jesus actively served when He was on earth! And He wants us to do the same. Even on the cross, He was still changing lives! The Centurion declared that He was the Son of God! The thief leapt from hell to paradise. Some heard him prayed that awesome prayer...Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing...
Therefore, we can make a difference in our society today! Make a little impact. Smile contagiously. Serve unselfishly. Shine brightly. Give generously. Encourage relentlessly! Everything you do, do it all for God's glory!
(John 13:34-35) "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
