Let your life be a witness to others – not your mouth

Matthew 23:12-13 (AMP) 12 Whoever exalts himself [with haughtiness and empty pride] shall be humbled (brought low), and whoever humbles himself [whoever has a modest opinion of himself and behaves accordingly] shall be raised to honor. 13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so.

God loves us and we do not have to live in fear but we should have a reverential fear that God means what He says. A religious and hypocritical person is someone who goes to church weekly to impress Christian friends and passes judgment on others because they do not live the same life. The question is how are you acting out in the world? How long does it take to forgive someone who hurts you? What do you do after you read the word? Do you apply it to your life or do you preach it to others to live their life that way but still live your life gossiping and being judgmental?

We are God’s representative; let your life be a witness to others, not your mouth.

2 Corinthians 5:20 (AMP) 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
