Philippians 1:27 “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ …”
Christianity is so easy to talk the talk, but not walk the walk. The Apostle Paul’s admonition to the believers at Philippi, was to live your life worthy of the gospel!
Every thought, every word, every deed, must be captured and surrendered at the foot of the cross! He died for our selfish ambitions. He died for our sinful desires. He died so that we might have life! Yet, we continue to turn back to our own ambitions and desires. Sometimes, we even fail to see our unrighteous behavior and cloak it in self-righteousness.
But, he loves us! But, he forgives us! But, he keeps bringing us back to his grace and mercy! Jesus Christ is a merciful, gracious, and loving LORD! Keep returning to his open arms!
