1 John 2:6 “..whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.”
Christ-like living. Those in Christ should be seen in His light. There is a transformation in daily living that exudes integrity, love, compassion, forgiveness, etc. Friends and family ought to see a radical change. There are lyrics to a song, “They will know we are Christians by our love……” Is that you? There is no room for holier-than-thou attitude. God’s light in you creates a contagious attraction that appeals to searching hearts. Those abiding in darkness may hate your transformation. The test for a Christian is maintaining a loving manner. When wronged, revenge may be justified, but leaving it to the Lord is the new response. Certainly easier said than done, but understanding God’s way, asking Him to gird you, will result in a blessing. Abiding in the palm of God’s Hand is the place to be. Pray, study and grow in the grace of God.
Lord, thank You for allowing us to abide in You. Draw us to You and protect us when evil raises its ugly head.
Abide in Christ today.
