Bible Challenge – 1 Peter 2

December 6, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

It is Gods will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you.  1 Peter 2:15

Let’s face it, the world is watching.  They see us at our best and sometimes, even though we try to hide it, they see us at our worst. When we take on the name of Christ and call ourselves Christians, there is a certain expectation/uncertainty that others have towards us, and lets be honest, that we even have towards ourselves.  Some of these expectations/uncertainties are spoken of and some unspoken, but they are there.  The way we live (words, actions, lifestyle) causes others to make judgments about us, and other Christians.  But our responsibility and main goal in life should be living in a way that pleases God.  When we do this, we live the honorable life that Peter describes in this passage. Yes, at times we may face persecution for what we believe, but lets push though that persecution so we can cause others to see Christ even more by the way we persevere and live while going though the persecution.

Today, how do you think people wold describe you? Would they even know that you are a Christian? Is the only difference they see is that you go to Church and they don’t? Do they see Christ living in you and you trying to live for Him? Father help us live the honorable lives that you have called us to live! In Jesus Name, Amen!
