“…so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”1 Thessalonians 4:12
Remember that the world’s reactions to you and your faith are not the most important. Our chief concern is that our daily life brings glory to God. We may walk before the world, but we don’t walk for the world. When we live for His glory and His alone, we do win the respect of outsiders.
Do all you can to live as people whose true citizenship is in heaven. Be grace-filled, hopeful pilgrims. “Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God” (1 Peter 2:16).
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
“We are the Bibles the world is reading; we are the creeds the world is needing; we are the sermons the world is heeding.” Billy Graham (1918-2018)
