Don’t Be A Candle Snuffer! Part 2 ~ By Stephen Lewis

Be stirred up and powerfully inspired as well as Shaken Up!


As I begin part 2 of this 2 part message I want to encourage you if you have not read part 1 please go and read it. As I mentioned in part one about the title, those of you who don’t know a candle snuffer is an instrument used to put out a flame or candle.

To those who are followers of Jesus Christ remember what Jesus teaches us in Matthew 22: 37 & 38

37 Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Sometimes I believe many of us act like we have forgotten these commandments. Love Trumps All, all hurt, all pain, all needs, all worries, all arguments, and all things. So for those of us who are followers of Jesus Christ pray for our Heavenly Father to teach us how to love better, to love like Jesus did, to love the lost and hurting, to just love. As we learn to show love and align our lives with God’s Word we will see more come to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord. We will be the match that helps light their candle and not snuff it out. As a follower of Jesus Christ, we have a great responsibility. We must represent and also never be the reason for someone to walk away or not even be interested in a relationship with Jesus.

Today I want us all, all over the world to be stirred up and powerfully inspired as well as Shaken Up! The days are changing fast and the world as we know is rapidly moving into the last days, we must be aware of who we are and how we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us on how to treat those we encounter. Thanks for reading, please share this with others, God Bless You and Yours Love You all!
