This weekend’s devotional reading included the quote above from Alistair Begg and as I begin yet another week interacting with people in the workplace, at home, and with friends that there is still sometimes a significant gap between what I know to be true and the way I carry myself. How about you?
Last week I saw a man from a particular faith. You might ask how did I know? His faith was evident from what he wore from the top of his head to the bottom of the coat he wore.
You can’t always tell who a Christian is by the manner of dress, as Paul reminds us in the verse below, it is a matter of our manner of life.
Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ…Philippians 1:27
Personally, I find the comments Alistair makes about how “we smile or scowl…the tone and content of our speech” most interesting and sometimes convicting. Is there a general smile on my face or am I too focused on the task at hand? What about the tone of my words?
Let’s think of how our lives can continue to close this gap this week.
