Standing Tall

The world casts a wary eye upon those that claim the name of Christ, that call themselves Christians. It’s always watching, waiting to point out any fault or miss-step we might make. Once you have accepted God’s gift of grace, you are called to a higher standard, His standard, and if we are to win the world for Jesus we need to live what He preached. Do you strive to do your best at whatever you do? Do you work the extra mile to get the job done for your employer? Are you kind, quick to forgive, non-judgemental but welcoming to those that don’t know the Lord? Are you spending time in His Word, ready to answer any questions of why you believe in Him? Remember Paul’s encouragement to Timothy that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man (woman) of God may be complete, thoroughly equip ed for every good work.” You say, hey wait a minute, I’m not an evangelist, probably not, but you are an ambassador! From everywhere you go to everyone you meet, you are representing the Lord. Make sure you are standing tall before the Son, living up to His standards, and giving the world nothing to cast it’s wary eye upon!
