It doesn’t matter where you come from; the life you live reflect who you are. Some of us may try to fake it, but in due time the real you will reveal itself.
So, as Christians, it is in our best interest to live our lives within the boundaries of the teachings of Jesus Christ. We must not forget that even though we are living in this world, we are not of this world.
We are special. The great apostle, Peter, writes the following:
1 Peter 2:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)Bible Gateway
9 You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
And because we are a peculiar people who have had our unique Damascus road experiences. Jesus calls us the light of the world and the salt of the earth. And God has set apart to carry out work. Therefore, we must live our lives accordingly.
In his letter to the Church in Ephesus, Apostle Paul writes the following:
Ephesians 4 New International Version (NIV)Bible Gateway
4 As a prisoner for the Lord, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
