How Are You Behaving?

“…having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.”

1 Peter 3:16

Our conduct as Christians is an important part of our testimony as we seek to shine in these dark days.

We must live a superior lifestyle. (See 1 Peter 3:16.) We are called to be wise in our conduct and speech.

We must also display genuine love. Our logic and our lifestyle have to go together—a full mind wedded with a loving heart.

Finally, we must always hold onto hope; Jesus has met the deepest needs of our hearts, therefore we have hope.
