“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.” Philippians 1:27.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Philippians 1-4.
We belong to God and the world is watching.
Why is the world watching? They know that we have standards by which we live. They may not understand what those standards are or even approve of them but they want to see us live them out.
I wonder how believers would live if they had to wear a certain uniform. If we had to identify ourselves visually with what we believe.
That uniform thing would be challenging for sure. How often do we behave in an ungodly manner? But maybe we would realize that we are on-call for God and act accordingly.
“Lord, forgive me for misrepresenting You. I do it among those who know I’m a believer. I do it among those who know nothing about what I believe. Fill me with You. Prick my conscience when I’m messing things up. I love You, Father.”
