Challenge to remain Christlike…
Gods Word tells us that we are to produce good fruit in all that we say and do. During the coming months as we enter into the different Holliday seasons I ask that you would remember who you represent. As Christians we represent God. We are His witnesses to what He has done and still doing. Before you get upset with the extra holiday traffic and longer checkout lines in the stores. Remember that hundreds of people may never read Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the Bible, but they do read our lives. When they look at us, what will they see? Will they see the good fruit; the fruit of the Spirit? Will love, joy, peace, patients, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control radiate from our words and actions? Remember you represent Christ, and He produces these good fruits that are listed in Galatians 5:22-23 — “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
Before you make a decision of any kind, ask yourself if God would be pleased by my words and actions?
