Joshua 24:15 .. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Colossians 3:14-17

“Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.”

The question we should be asking ourselves as Christians: “Are we clothed in Christ and presenting ourselves like Him?”

It’s not just about how we see ourselves, but how others see us, and how God sees us.

Most of us believe we always look good, but do we? Do we consider the feelings of others, are we gracious, thankful, forgiving, considerate, kind?

Things to consider:

How’s our speech?

Uplifting and encouraging, hopeful, appropriate, or offensive and negative

How’s our attitude?

Do we say thank you and your welcome, I appreciate you, do we acknowledge people, do we ask how people are feeling, or do we just say nothing at all

How’s our judgement?

Humility, wise, forgiving, caring; or are we condescending, better than everyone else, do we look down on others, do we ridicule 

How’s our demeanor?

Kind, considerate, welcoming; or harsh, or quick tempered, essentially saying stay away

How’s our relationship with God?

If everything else seems wrong, especially all of the above, then your relationship with God is almost certainly suffering, which means you are too; change your actions to be more loving and your relationship with Jesus will grow.

Does God seem far away?

He has not moved, He still lives inside us, joins us at Church, lives in our homes and wherever we go. Have you moved, He hasn’t.

Jesus has called us to be different from the world, He expects us through our Love for Him to grow in Christian love and maturity; if we are not growing in Christ there is no better time to start than now. The more faithful we are to Jesus Christ the more blessed we will be and the more at peace we will be within ourselves and with God, and better able to love others. How do we look in Christ? 

Choose this day who you will serve and who you will be, let’s all present ourselves as Christ would have us to be.
