“In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.”

Titus 2:7-8

In this scripture, Apostle Paul, admonished Titus on what was expected of him in ministry. But, this instruction also applies to all Christians. We are to present the gospel of Jesus without blemish through our conducts and lifestyle.

People are no longer moved by big ‘titles’. Likewise, just saying ‘I am a Christian’ or ‘I am born again’ makes no significant difference in how the society perceives you, if your life is not Christ-like.

The world is now apprehensive. They want to see your integrity in the face of corruption, speak with love when angry, exercise self-control when provoked.

Remember that we are ambassadors of Jesus here on earth, therefore, we are to live a godly lifestyle. Dare to stand out, even if you stand alone – as long as you’re standing on the side of truth and godliness.

Further Study: Hebrews 3:12, 1 Peter 1:14-15, 1Peter 2:9

Charge: A compromised Christian life can be a barrier to the salvation of those around you.

Stay blessed.
