CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE THE ENVY OF THE WORLD!
● We who claim to be the beneficiaries of God’s grace & forgiveness, objects of His Love and mercy and say we are on our way to Heaven, SHOULD LOOK LIKE IT!
“BASED ON WHAT THE WORLD SEES IN US, DO THEY WANT WHAT WE HAVE?”
● ARE WE APPEALING? ● Are We GOOD advertising?
According to the historian Tertullian 200A.D. The APPEAL of the early Christians was their Joy & the Love they had for each other. Would that be the same observation history would make of you and I, ARE WE APPEALING?
(2 Corinthians 2:14-3:3) But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and (also) among those who are perishing; to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things? For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God. Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some, letters of commendation to you or from you? You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
This message is a challenge to Christians to authentically model of the life we claim to possess.
MAKE SURE YOUR LIFE IS A CONFIRMATION OF THE GOSPEL NOT A CONTRADICTION TO IT.
