Success and Failure Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.What’s your sign? That is a question often asked by those who are interested in finding out what your astrological sign is. Even though I am not a believer in my role in the universe based upon my astrological sign, there are many who maintain your sign helps you in the business world, in friendships and with life in general. Some commonly believe you either fail or succeed based upon your sign.

Hearing this question made me reflect on my life as a believer in Christ. How do I communicate my faith in Christ in an effective manner to others especially those who do not know Christ? Are others curious about my life because they see something different in me?

What is the purpose of a sign? First of all, a sign is usually placed in location that is easily visible. Even though we usually do not walk around with a visible sign on our back, the world will be watching us to see how we treat others. Do I treat others with respect and appreciation? How do I respond to various tough situations? If I maintain a positive attitude when things are not going as planned, the reality of my faith will be displayed. My life will be visible to others.

What results will I get from having this Godly sign? What kind of message am I leaving to those around me? Do I receive positive feedback? I want the “sign” of my life to point to Jesus and His character. I want them to feel His love because of my love for them.

Matthew 5:14-16Matthew 5:14-16
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house. 16 Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven
