Do you feel noticed?
Our fifth Sunday lesson was based on missionary work, and we had questions and answers from our youth to our sister missionaries.
It’s incredible how much time can go by, and I still remember putting on my missionary name tag and representing the Savior all day, every day.
I miss that extreme focus on the Gospel, and I’m grateful for the time I had to experience it.
One of the sisters commented today about putting on her name tag, and it made me think. She said, “When I put my name tag on, people notice me.”
We are clearly able to identify a missionary by their name tag, no doubt—are we clearly able to identify other representatives of Jesus Christ without a name tag?
As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we can choose to stand as representatives of Jesus Christ in our conduct and actions.
Whether we served a mission and put on a name tag or not, we have an opportunity to stand as agents to the Lord.
Our countenance doesn’t go unnoticed as we follow the teachings and obey the commandments—People recognize we are different.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14–16.
“When Christ was on the earth, He said to some men who also knew of His divinity, that there was an obligation upon all such who possessed the knowledge of the existence of God and of the truths of the gospel of Christ.” Pres. David O. Mckay.
When we serve the Lord, we will be noticed. It’s His work, and He wants everyone to hear it. He will make sure we are all noticed as we share the Gospel and stand as His representatives.
