In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men... And the Word became Flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
In the world of big-business dealmaking, the human "connector" can reap riches. Because the one who unites key players enables a powerful alliance.
This connector might be called an agent: bringing a gifted player to a team, an unknown author to a publisher, an inventor to the right producer or a rising star to an open stage.
In the world of good business for the Lord, the right Connector is the Word of God.
Because the One Who unites men with God enables a wonderful alliance. The King of connectors is Jesus Christ. The point of unity was His Own death.
Once done, His connection extends by faith and the place of contact becomes our mouths. We got the best deal and fortune in One.
Actors, models and talent for Christ, if your mouths can connect you with God by professions of faith in His Son, consider some other connections:
1) Communication technology now circles and connects the whole earth.
2) Your talent to speak can connect you with countless lost fans seeking a home.
3) The impact of your testimonies off stage can make Jesus more relatable.
4) The short circuit found in some churches can be repaired by your example.
5) The connections media provides were ordained by God for your witness.
## Self-Examination 2020: Mouth, Your Connector (Part 39)
NOTE: This is a 2020 edit of a 2017 Shine Devotion series, 'Self-Examination.' You may see notes to 'Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.' If you think you're not in show business, think again. Shakespeare said, 'All the world's a stage and all its men and women merely players.' Mostly true. But you're not 'merely players.' You are messengers and ambassadors for the King of kings.
P.S. To read the other devotions in this series, please see the Self-Examination 2020 series.
