CONDUCT THAT HONORS CHRIST - Max Lucado

Those who don’t believe in Jesus note what we who believe in Jesus do. They make decisions about Christ by watching us. When we’re kind, they assume Christ is kind. When we’re gracious, they assume Christ is gracious. But when we’re dishonest, what assumption will an observer make about our Master?

No wonder the Apostle Paul says, “Be wise in the way you act with people who are not believers, making the most of every opportunity. When you talk, you should always be kind and pleasant so you will be able to answer everyone in the way you should” (Colossians 4:5-6 NCV).

Courteous conduct honors Christ. It also honors his children. When you make an effort to greet everyone in the room, especially the ones others may have overlooked, you honor God’s children with a love worth giving.

From Mike: Romans 14:12  "So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God." This verse is somewhat confusing to me because God already knows everything. There are two questions He could ask that bother me: Who is a Christian because of you? Who is not a Christian because of you?

Read Colossians 4:5-6 again and think about it.

Thanks!
