I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,endevouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3
How much lowliness do you exhibit in your life?
Or, do you tend to look down on others because of their physical looks, how much they make or if they have a different accent than you(they need not be from a different country but from a different part of your own country)?
Is your speech gentle and graceful or are you as course as sandpaper? Do you make rude comments or gossip about others?
If someone has an annoying habit do you bark at them or pray for meekness and tolerance? Do you work to keep harmony or do you delight in starting fights and finding fault?
This need not be just in your Christian community.
As Christians we are what the world sees as Christ. How are you doing in your family, at school and at work?
It is difficult if not impossible for us to accomplish these things.
Then how are we to succeed?
We are to humbly ask the Holy Spirit to bless us with the demeanor of Christ so as to glorify Him and draw others to Him.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the attributes of Your most holy son so as to exhibit to others Your love and grace in all my words and in all my actions. I humbly request this in the name of the most gracious of all Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
