We’ve all heard the saying “what you see is what you get.” As Christ-followers, that a good thing to remember, because what the watching world sees in us – in our behavior – often becomes the way they think about our Savior, and our faith.
Remember, those around you think that, what they see in you is what they’ll get if they were ever to entrust their lives to Jesus, They think they’re going to get your life, your character, your temperament.
That’s why our behavior matters. That’s why our words matter. That’s why the way we order our lives, and handle adversity, and control our passions and desires matters. Because to shine the Light of Christ means our lives must be a reflection of his, and that only happens when we’re dressed in the Gospel… and we wear it well.
