Let Your Conduct Be Worthy…
To be here in this world, an Ambassador of The Kingdom of God, is the life believers were chosen for. We should conduct ourselves as such at all times. Unfortunately, we will not be able to achieve such a lofty height as we are still in the flesh. Sin, while it has been tamed, has not been disappeared from our life. It is only through Jesus Christ that our sin is forgiven, but make no mistake about it, we are going to sin.
As Ambassadors of The Kingdom of God is it better to be here in this world or to pass on and be with Jesus in the next life? We should always turn to Jesus Christ, first, for guidance in our life so we have the best opportunity to be a great Ambassador for Christ. If we are with Jesus Christ and He is with us we can not fail.
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. ~ Philippians 1:21-24 KJB
As our life continues to unfold before us the opportunities to serve become greater. As believers, we should find ourselves seeking opportunities to share the Gospel, to share our testimony and bring the lost and the broken into the Kingdom. How do we know which opportunities we are to dedicate time, resources and effort? Of course, we would pray and seek, first, our Fathers wisdom. While we are serving God’s children and serving to glorify God, our actions and our words are what others would see and hear. We could be the only copy of the Holy Bible they have ever seen, we could be the only True copy of the Holy Bible they have ever heard or seen or we could be an affirmation of the pain they suffered at the hands of a person using the Holy Bible as a weapon. We should be ever mindful of our status as an Ambassador of the Kingdom of God.
Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. ~ Philippians 1:27-28 NKJB
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.
