What’s your life report?

What can be said about our lives from outsiders or individuals in our spheres of influence? If

someone we’ve come in contact with were to give a statement on our lives, what would it be?

Could they say from the way you lived, that you were a follower of Jesus if you never told

them?

In Numbers 13,  The Lord told Moses to send men to explore Canaan and return with a report.

In Numbers 13: 17-20 it says,

17 When Moses was sending them out to explore Canaan, he said, “Go through the Negev and

then into the hill country. 18 See what the land looks like. Learn about the people who live

there. Are they strong or are they weak? Are they few or are they many? 19 Learn about the

land that they live in. Is it good land or bad land? What kind of towns do they live in? Do the

towns have walls protecting them? Are the towns strongly defended? 20 And learn other things

about the land. Is the soil good for growing things, or is it poor soil? Are there trees on the

land? Try to bring back some of the fruit from that land.” (This was during the time when the

first grapes should be ripe.)

This section of the chapter speaks for itself. Given these guidelines, what do our lives and

homes portray?

1. LEARN ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE.

In Philippians 2 we are given several descriptions of how a christian should live. Be united and
care for one another, be unselfish, just be the people God wants us to be. This chapter
provides such a wealth of information on Gods direction for us and our interactions with
 others.
2. ARE THEY STRONG OR ARE THEY WEEK?
 The Lord constantly reminds us that He is our strength in our times of weakness.
 Isaiah 40:29 – He gives strength to the weary
 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 – His power is made perfect in our weakness
 Habakkuk 3: 19 – The sovereign Lord is my strength
3. ARE THEY FEW OR ARE THEY MAY?

 None of us stand alone. We are made to work together for the cause of Christ

 1 Corinthians 12:27 – All of you are the body of Christ

Colossians 2:19 – Because of Christ all the parts of the body care for each other and help each other.

As we study the full content of these scriptures, I pray that each of us is reminded of the

story that our lives tell. The story is not only ours but that of the One we believe in.
