Putting God's Word into Practice…

Philippians 1:27-30 Changing the World

on December 17, 2012

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ.”  Let the gospel affect our behavior and let our behavior reflect the gospel to others.  The gospel cannot be sequestered to the moment in time when we heard and believed–the gospel has to define our daily life!  Daily living the gospel brings unity of mind and action among believers and helps us to fearlessly face suffering for the sake of Jesus.

How can the gospel of Jesus Christ be prominently displayed in my life?

  • Offer forgiveness free and clear
  • Give grace and mercy to the undeserving
  • Sacrificially and unconditionally love others
  • Suffer at the hands of others for the sake of their salvation

How would living like that change my relationships with others?  If the church united in these gospel-reflecting behaviors; could it change the world?
