Be Spiritually Contagious
The word contagious can be defined as: (of an emotion, feeling, or attitude) likely to spread to and affect others. We normally just relate the word to someone being sick with a cold or the flu as being contagious to others. Today I want to steer you in a different direction with this word. I want you to have an attitude, a walk, and an aura about you that will cause others to want to catch what you have. Aura can be defined as: the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place. This is the Aura I am talking about; it’s an anointing from God that you carry with you everywhere you go. Some won’t know or understand what it is about you, but when they get near you their atmosphere changes in a positive way. Matthew wrote in Chapter 5:16
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Give people a reason to want to ask, “What is it about Frank or Jane that makes me want to be around them?” Or, “Why does the atmosphere become cheerful when Nancy or Xavier come into the room?” Or even, “Why is Elizabeth so happy when things seem to be disastrous?” That’s when someone will answer, “They have a relationship with Jesus Christ?”
That’s how you and I need to infect the lives of those around us, no matter whether you live in Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Samoa Islands, Mexico, or even the United States. The bottom line is we need to be contagious, giving off that Aura of the Holy Spirit. Remember the Fruit of the Holy Spirit within us is listed in Galatians 5:22 which states:
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
These are the God-given fruits that we carry around with us every day and we need to let them overflow from us as we interact with others out there wherever we go. People will be drawn to you in a way that God gets the glory because the end result is sharing the Gospel and your testimony.
So today I want to say to you all, BE SPIRITUALLY CONTAGIOUS everywhere you go. This world needs Hope they Need You, and more importantly, they Need Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. So get out there and be Contagious! Go infect someone with the Love of Jesus Christ today! God Bless You and Yours Love You All!!
