Working HARD to be Walk Worthy!
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Have you spent any time on social media lately? Or watching the news? Or has your friend group discussed current events?
In these instances, do you ever find yourself applauding someone who very succinctly and eloquently puts someone else in their place? Even when it is done in an unkind manner.
It feels like somehow we are suspending the way we should behave towards each other because we feel the other side is SO wrong they deserve any and all reactions.
I know I have been guilty of feeling so convicted in my beliefs that I make someone with a different opinion practically my enemy.
Yet, in these days Christians have been on ALL sides of the issues. And folks I know there have been some seriously BIG situations in the last couple of years.
The Walk Worthy tee became a very important reminder for me as I navigated this season. Now with the cling it is even more useful to have the daily reminder.
It is a great visual that we as Christians are meant to be WALKING together. That means everyone who is a brother and sister in Christ. Because even when you can't find agreement in the issues of this world as Christians we all believe in something SO.MUCH.BIGGER.
Let this tee and cling be used to help you be humble, gentle, patient and loving to ALL others. We need to make sure that we are showing the world that our FAITH, our BELIEF in Christ supersedes our worldly beliefs.
There is only one real enemy. And it is not the Christian on the other side of the political aisle or the non-believer who is living fully for this world.
The enemy is the one who is corrupting this world.
Let us please remember our purpose is to share Christ with those who do not know him, to stand with other Christians in our faith and to clearly BE different in this world that is struggling all around us.
