Do we “walk the walk”?

It can be a little bit challenging for us to remember to “walk the walk” when it comes to our walk with Christ.  How many of the people that you saw yesterday at church behave the same way on Monday as they did yesterday?  Hopefully everyone, but experience tells us that many might not.

This is not a criticism of anybody; you need to understand that!2013-02-23_17-49-35_355

No, it’s more like a self-appraisal.  Who am I to criticize?  I am not so perfect myself, and it is a matter of great comfort to know that our Lord is merciful and will forgive us our sins when we confess them to Him and ask.  With that said, it also is not profitable either for me or for anyone else… and certainly it is not profitable for the Gospel if I continue to make the same mistakes over and aver again!

Maybe it would help to remember who and what we are!

Q: Who are we?

A: We are servants of Christ.

Q: What are we?

A: We are Ambassadors of Christ

Q: What do we do?

A: We offer the ministry of reconciliation.

Perhaps if we can remember these things, who and what we are, and what we do, it will become more natural to behave accordingly as we go through the week.  Maybe that word that sprouts forth out of frustration would never be spoken, replaced with grace instead.  Maybe that dumb thing that we really shouldn’t do would be replaced with actions pleasing in His sight.

I surely hope that every single person who views this post will have a wonderful week, full of His truth and full of His grace.  I also hope and pray that armed with the certain knowledge of who and what we are, and what it is that we do, we will also bring much-needed grace into the lives of someone else.

    I read in the scriptures that God gave judgment of us to His son; His son turned to us and said The Word will judge us; hmm, who am I to judge another’s servant? I have a lot of things to work out about myself, right?
