“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.” Romans 5:22
As a Christian, we are supposed to be a light in this world of darkness. We are supposed to be different, we are supposed to have the fruits of the spirit, as above. We are supposed to be set apart from the world, godly in manner and speech.
“For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy” Lev 11:44
If we are seen going out and getting drunk, swearing like a sailor, carrying on like a moron, sleeping around with all and sundry, dressing like a 2 bit prostitute and lusting after worldly things, how are we any different from the rest of the world?!
How are people supposed to know God if they don’t see Him in the world through us? We are supposed to be the ones that show God’s love and attributes and we can’t do that if we are ‘in the world’, acting like everyone else ‘in the world’.
Please, if you call yourself a Christian, read the bible, renew your mind with the Word and let God work through you.
I know we are not perfect and we all fall, but God will pick us up, dust us off and we can start again.
