Remind the people to respect the government and be law-abiding, always ready to lend a helping hand. No insults, no fights. God’s people should be bighearted and courteous.
Titus 3:1-2 MSG
We are being reminded that our daily lives must be a reflection of our transformation!
In our work places, & homes. In our decisions & interactions on all levels, we must strive to be good citizens by being obedient to civil authority, lawful, tolerant, patient, kind, and selfless.
This does not mean that as Christians we must be cowards and look away when people in authority misconduct themselves, but we must out of respect and lawfulness use the best available channels to air our views and grievances. Most importantly, we must ensure that through our Christlikeness the change we so desire will start with us.
Friends, let us bring the influence of the gospel, and our Christian faith to bear on our public life. As children of light, our radiance must be felt by all who encounter us, as it is written: "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:16 NIV)
May your transformation effect, affect your generation.
