Holding Forth The Word of Life…
As we mature in our Christ identity, come to understand our role, our path and His will in our life, we should put aside our ill-will for others, our foul mouth and our murmurs and grumblings about any situation we find ourselves. We should rejoice, always, in all situations as a Light of the World as we carry the Word of God with each step we take, with each breath we breathe and with every interaction with our brothers and sisters in Christ. When we depart their company there should be no question regarding faith, regarding love and regarding our Savior and the King of kings.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. ~ Philippians 2:12-16 KJB
With all that Jesus Christ has poured into us, we should pour out into the lives of those around us. We should be a copy of the Gospel and an announcement to all that our Lord, Jesus Christ, has left to dwell within us the Holy Spirit of God. There should be no doubt who we are and that we are not of this world but merely an Ambassador of the Kingdom.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
