We cannot take our actions lightly. Our behavior speaks louder than words. Be a reason others want to come to Christ. Do what is right and remain humble.
Living a Godly life automatically means we should do what is right and live humble lives. Humble in the context of focusing less on our own importance and more on Christ. Or, as the Bible states in John 3:30 ESV, “He (Jesus) must increase, but I must decrease.”
God’s authority and influence must blossom within us (through the Holy Spirit) and emanate outward to attract others to the faith. Our actions give cause for others to examine our faith and open their hearts to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
People are always looking to disparage us by observing our behaviors to determine the legitimacy of Christianity. If we seek to do what is right and live humbly, we leave little to discount our authenticity. We are God’s workmanship and have been given the charge to spread the Good News through our words and actions.
We must learn to do what is right and remain humble.
God never writes us off. He is here for us if we receive Him as our Lord and Savior, and open our hearts to His Will, His Way, and His life that He has prepared for us. We must return to innocence and reinvest our lives in Christ. New beginnings, new life. ~ LISA BLAIR
Sometimes we have to rethink our lives, our purpose through Christ and embrace the child in us longing for relationship through obedience and reconciliation. Children carry few regrets, are open and full of expectations of a bright future. The Lord shares that whatever is in the past is behind us and we are supposed to look forward into the life He has planned for us. Our chronological age is irrelevant. Regrets are behind us, leave them there. All we have is today and the time God gives us to walk down His path. We should make the most of it.
Each day that we wake up to serve the Lord, we face the challenges of daily battles. We all have them. The enemy of our soul is trying to destroy us, so Satan is the enemy that we are all trying to ultimately defeat. The truth is that Jesus defeated him at Calvary and that daily we are defeating him in our lives. The final victory will come at Armageddon when the enemy is totally defeated forever. For now, we need to ask God what He wants us to do in these daily skirmishes with our enemy. Does he want us to go out to battle or just rest in him? There is a real difference between just allowing God to act victoriously and our struggling with Satan’s taunts and temptations. In the Book of Job, Job faces Satan head on, loses everything and still does not curse God. Job…
God covers me in the Blood and provides shelter. I am never alone or out in the cold.
