Christlike.

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭KJV‬‬
The Bible says they were called Christian 1st at Antioch.

It was because their instructions were to follow the Lord Jesus in their Christain walk , emulating The Master. Being Like Jesus.

You see there’s more to being a Christian than just claiming to be one.

We all are sinners. We’ve all come short of the Glory of God.

Isaiah declared ” all We like sheep had gone astray.”.  

But the Child Of God isn’t just a talker, he s a walker!

He walks in the Light of The Lord.

 That means the light of His wonderful Love permeates from the life of the ones saved by His marvelous Grace!

Now how constructive can it get? We mustn’t forget that our salvation had a commitment to the Lord that we walk in a way that is pleasing to Him.
” Let your light so shine that all the world can see!” That’s not just a good idea, it’s the Commandment of The Lord Jesus!

When you act like the world you don’t do the cause of Christ much good … I mean how can they Know of His love and how he can change ones life if the ones he changed doesn’t act

Like they’ve been changed?
I had invited an old school buddy to church. I used to raise a lot of sand with him back in my younger years .

But since then The Lord saved me. It changed my whole Life. But my friend was a tough one to handle and was very apprehensive about this “Jesus Saves” business. 

But after a while I finally convinced him to come to church.
As we sat

In church I noticed an

Unusual reaction on his part.

As we left the church that morning I asked him how he liked it.

You will be blown away by his reply, just as I was.
He assured me that he had a good time. But then He added… But….

But what I asked.

He said it was hard for him to get serious about church goin as he said some of those there that morning was at the same bar and dance hall he had attended the Saturday night before.

 Then he said I can’t attend a church that’s full of hypocrites.
Though surprised and I confess, hurt and feelin betrayed, I asked him which is best, put up with em here for a little while , or die lost and spend eternity with them?

When I think of the countless hours the Body of Christ has spent witnessing and ministering to the lost and dying, it is terrible to hear that some are not acting very ” Christlike”.
Some have just enough salvation to make themselves miserable! Heehee.

But it begs to ask the ???

Why are some Christians so in love with the world and not so in love with the Savior of all men? 

Why do they allow their light to fade ? Where is the fire they once knew in their heart?
The lost today are not fooled. They see they hear and they can tell when it’s real. The life of the Christian as I’ve said before is the only Bible some people will ever read.

Our mission is to be what was it Paul Called it???

Rooted, built in Him, established in the Faith…

Why? 

That they might see your good works and Glorify our Heavenly Father.

Thank God there’s still some “Pauls ” portraying the Lord And Savior. 

Thank you for being Christlike…. What a beautiful sight.

Good night.
