This Week’s Devotional PROMISE: When you live in the light and set a good example for others to follow, your actions will be pleasing to God.
“For you were once in darkness, but now you are in the light of the Lord. Walk as children of light, for the fruit of the light results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth – discerning what is pleasing to the Lord" Ephesians 5:8-10
OK, here is a question: What kind of example are you? Are you the kind of person whose life serves as a powerful example of decency and morality? Are you a positive role model for others? Does your life reflect the character of Jesus? If yes, you are not only blessed by God, but you are also a powerful force for good in a world that desperately needs positive influences such as yours.
We live in a dangerous, temptation-filled world. That’s why you encounter so many opportunities to stray from God’s commandments. Resist those temptations! God, our spouses, children, and communities are watching us as spiritual leaders and counting on us to make a difference.
Your life is a sermon. What kind of sermon will you preach? The words you choose to speak will have a significant impact on others but not as much impact as the life you choose to live.
“Set an example of good works yourself, with integrity and dignity in your teachings" Titus 2:7
Have a Blessed week, my friends.
