Transparent Man

Transparent Man
 When we see a glass made of clear glass, of course we also be able to see what's in the glass. but if we look at a dark glass or a dark bottle, then we will be confused and difficult to guess exactly what is in the container. What is in it is dangerous or not, inanimate or living, and of course, other questions will arise in our minds. Likewise, a person whose life can not be known by others, he can be called by a mysterious man. What about us ? Are we including transparent human or mysterious ?

As a person who has experienced a new life in Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit, we need to be a transparent human. The people around us should be able to see "the contents of our lives", which is the life of Jesus. With a transparent life, we can open ourselves to criticism, reprimand, advice, etc. which are expressed by someone to us so that our lives can be better. But sometimes we are happy to cover up certain things in our lives and feel a loss if other people know about it.

While the people around us may know us through our words, thoughts, and actions that it all comes from the heart. With a heart like Jesus, then our life out through words and actions will reflect the person of Jesus. Thus we can be witnesses of Christ's life, therefore many people who look at our lives can believed and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior through our lives. For that we must be a transparent human. Do not be a mysterious man, which is difficult to guess because it might still like to do sins or perhaps like to do the whitewash so that our life became difficult to repair. This will make the people around us to be confused and wondering, "Are we really followers of Christ or not ?"

Let us open up and be transparent so that everyone who sees us can see the personal Jesus in and through our lives.

"As water reflects the face, so the heart of man reflects the man" (Proverbs 27: 19)

The people around us know who we are through our words, thoughts and deeds, all that comes from the heart.
