Show me your faith by the kind of character you show to people.The bible is full of moral principles for all Christians to follow.
Understanding The Faith Of Christians
Christians all around the world must know that faith should yield good fruits, faith in Christ Jesus should result in good character and good personal relationships with people we meet each day.
You have faith doesn’t mean you should forget about morality.The bible is the life book of every Christian believer, it teaches us how to live life without blemish.
As you increase in faith,let everything you do glorify God for people to see that, Yes!, indeed you worship God.Don’t tell me you have faith in God and be selfish, unforgiving, hateful etc.
If you do that then you become like the Pharisees, they were hypocrites. Christians should let their faith move along with their works just like what our father Abraham did.
“But would you like evidence, you empty fellow, that faith without works is useless?Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?You see that his faith was working together with his works and his faith was perfected by works.”(James 2:20-22)
Faith is invisible, it is only God who sees the heart. So to be a good Christian, live an exemplary life for people to see that you are a child of God indeed.
Let your faith move along with your behaviour always;for your works or character speaks louder to people than your faith which is invisible to mankind.Even if you face hard times never lose faith.Be steadfast in the Lord.
Let us also read what 2 Peter 1:5-8 says to all Christians:
” For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge;to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness;to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love.For if these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately.”
The Faith Of Christians Leave Good Testemony About Them
When you put all these morals together in your life as a Christian, you send a good image of your self to the world. Even people who don’t know God would like to learn from your excellence, knowledge, self-control,perseverance, love etc. and through that they will come to know God.
This is a great way to win souls for Christ Jesus.Stay away from worldly lifestyles and let the bible be your code of conduct. People will ask you why are you so kind?,why are you unselfish?,why do you always show love?,then you tell them it’s because of the word of God.
Your faith together with good morals will make you a true Christian, show people your faith in God through your character or works and they would yearn to learn about this Jesus Christ who has transformed you into a noble person.You will become productive in everything you do and everywhere you find yourself.
Again, the Lord himself will protect you from any harm and bless you abundantly.This is the word of God for today,stay blessed.
