“Conduct yourself honourably among the Gentiles, so that, though they malign you as evildoers, they may see your honourable deeds and glorify God when he comes to judge.”1 Peter 2:12
The difference between a true Christian from someone who has no knowledge about Christ or had swayed from the truth is seen from character and comportment.
How you conduct yourself anywhere you are and whatever you do is very important. People see how you behave, how you talk, how you walk and whatever you so. They are the one to decide if truly the life of Christ is in you or not.
You may think you are straight with God, maybe you think you pray, your attend church, or you are in the choir. Perhaps you are a pastor in your church.
Does your character and behaviour portrait the real God-like character? Or are you just pretending? Remember, you can deceive those around you. In fact, you can hide your smoking, drinking and sexual immorality secret from them BUT can you run away from God’s all-seen eyes?
Let God be seen in you. Make it your duty to show the life of Christ in you. Let the Holy Spirit be presence in your life so that you will be helped to walk as God wants you to.
If God is not seen in you, then why are you a Christian? Or do you think being a Christian means just attending church service, praying, paying tithes, and singing worships songs?
Do not be the one to crucify our Lord Jesus Christ the more. In fact, pray not to be a child of disobedience. If you must, then change your habit. Live your life according to God’s instruction so that people will praise God for your life, and most importantly that they will come to accept the Lord Jesus Christ through seeing your Godly-character.
