We need to walk the Christian walk. You know how people say, “You can’t just talk the talk, you have to walk the walk.” That applies big-time to our Christian life. Sometimes we separate the time we go to church on Sunday (maybe Wednesdays) from every other day. Do we act the same way we do at church to our school life or work life? Or is that completely separate? If people looked at you when you’re not at church, could they tell you’re a Christian? Can the people at church tell you’re saved? 1 Thessalonians 2:12 (NASB) says this:
“Walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.”
God has accepted us into His kingdom. He has given us the gift of eternal life. And what do we do? We blow it off. We can claim we’re saved, but if we ignore God six days a week, what’s the point? If we put aside God til Sunday, can we actually be saved?
“Walk in a manner worthy of (the) God….” Are you walking the walk? Or are you just talking the talk? We need to understand that being a Christian isn’t just a one day a week thing. We need to devote all our time to the God who loves us, who saved us, who laid His life down for us. And we need to set an example for others 24-7 so that they can come to know God as well.
