“Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.”
2 Thessalonians 1:12 NLT THE WAY YOU LIVE!
It was said that “you may be the ONLY GOSPEL someone would ever read!” This means that the WAY WE LIVE is the practical and VISIBLE way God is reaching non-believers so that they also may know Him and believe in Him to be saved! The way we speak, the way we answer, the way we react, the way we solve problems, the way we act in different situations, our lifestyle, the way we handle conflict, all ought to bring honour to the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Don’t say I have always been angry or reactive or aggressive and I cannot change, it is who I am! Rather, accept the work of the Holy Spirit within you and He will TRANSFORM you to be in the full Image of God according to the new nature given to you in the Holy Baptism! Work with God’s Grace to overcome the shadows of the “old person” within you and become the New Creation Christ has granted you to be. Take one way of life that needs to change in you and commit this matter in prayers and God will change you day by day to reflect His light into the world!
