Honored In My Life?
By C. H. MacIlravy
The people around us are watching us, they are looking and examining us to see exactly what we are, regardless of our testimonies. They are hearkening for our voices, not only in the meetings and when we are in the Spirit, but when we are not conscious of their scrutiny. They are measuring our lives and watching us when we do not know it. It is not for our own sakes alone that God is calling us to walk softly before Him, and admonishing us that our words and actions must be like Jesus Christ. The most important thing is that Christ may be honored and not dishonored, that He may be shown forth in our lives in all His beauty and glory. The next important thing is for the sake of those about us who are repelled or drawn to Christ by what they see in the lives of His followers.
