WHAT DO MY ACTIONS SAY OF MY CHARACTER?

What does my character say of me?  I remember a time when it was an honor and a privilege to be counted among those who claim to be Christians, even when you were not.  I remember telling others why I could not do something or go to a particular event, because I was a Christian, only to hear, “I am a Christian too, but….”.  The very thought of not being part of that particular group was not acceptable to them.

As a Christian, I need to live an extraordinary life, because I serve an Extra-Ordinary God.  My actions need to lead others to the throne of God, rather than away from it.  When I claim Christ as my Lord and Savior, there are expectations of me involved. People expect me to live a particular lifestyle, one that is distinctly opposite to theirs, if they are not saved. Consistent actions define my character, it tells others who I am, what I think, what I believe.

We live in a world now, where no one wants to be called a Christian. They do not even want to be associated with anything Christ-like. Today, the very term ‘Christian’ is being redefined, to suit the desires of the world; the standards are being lowered to accommodate the desires.  We live in a world, where very little is expected of and from a Christian.  Who is responsible for this?  We are!  We have compromised the Word of God to such an extent, that there is now, little or no difference between a child of a Loving and Holy God and the child of the world.

Jesus Christ lived a very different kind of life while on earth.  He said we are in the world, but not of it (John 17:16).   He gave specific directives for our new life in Him, all throughout Scripture. He tells us how to walk along this journey (Philippians 4:8,9) and He has promised to be right there with us (Hebrews 13:5,6).

Let us begin again, the world is watching.  They need Hope, they need Peace, yes, they need Love, but His name is Jesus Christ.
