Ephesians 4:3-4 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. (NIV)

 Colossians 3:14-15 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (NIV)

 There are many people who never will have a personal encounter with Jesus.   The only way these people can see Jesus is when they see Him through a believer.  Jesus dwells in us, the believers.  We must remember we are possibly the only Jesus others might ever see.  When they look at us, are they able to see the love and peace of Jesus?  Since He is in us, are we allowing Him to show through our expression and speak through our words?  We are more than His representatives.  Since He dwells in us, we are Jesus to others.  It is important for us to connect closely and be real with others. What led me to Jesus was a smile on a lady when she looked at me (this is in one of my older devotions). We might never know the effect we have on someone else. Let’s be sure the effect is a result of Jesus in us.
