Blending in...

Geckos have an uncanny way of assuming the characteristics of their surroundings. This is a defensive measure and I'm sure it goes a long way in baffling predators bent on turning them into tasty tidbits.

As humans, it's easy to get lost in our surroundings, to blend into the background so completely that others don't notice us as being different or unique in any way. But as Christians, we should always strive to showcase our glorious standing as children of God. After all, once we accept Christ, He lives within us; we are His ambassadors to the fallen world. We are to live our life for Him, to glorify Him through our actions, our dealings with others, and our words. We must stand out from our surroundings if we expect others to see that Christ lives in us. In that way, we can be an encouragement to others to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior so they, too, can stop hiding in the arms of the rough and tumble world of sin and step into the Light of Salvation.

Until the next time...
