Our lives should glorify our Father in Christ through the Holy Spirit. There should be no room for mediocrity in anything we say or do. Like a city on a hill we should be seen by all as a point of reference that leads to a saving knowledge of Jesus.
People should be able to see that we are Christian by what we talk about, where we hang out, what we do, and how we act at home and in public. It’s easy to talk the talk and not walk the walk. It’s foolish to think that we can be one thing in public and another in private. Our private life will always show up in our public life.
A double minded person should never deceive themselves into thinking that God is going to give them anything. He is sworn to care for those who are in covenant with Him and to stand against those who play around on Him. Believe me; He knows the difference.
Don’t be deceived by the modernist preachers. Living a repentant life-style is still what God requires. As one preacher said recently, “You can’t have the grace of God without the God of grace”. Jesus makes disciples, not buddies. You and I cannot be “a friend of God” and be friends with the world. Covenant works both ways.
Let your life be light to a dark world by living in a manner that will glorify God.
