Are You Living It?

In 1 Thessalonians 2:10, Paul writes, "You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed."

Wow.  That's pretty ballsy.  I don't know too many Christians that are willing to actually say, "Hey, look at me, I'm living the way I've been telling you that you are supposed to live."  That takes some guts, because we all have our moments and fall short of what we expect of ourselves and what God expects of us.

What if your goal today was to simply live today in such a way that you could speak like this about today?  Can we live like that for one day?  I think that's doable.  And if we can do it for one day today, we can probably do the same tomorrow.  One day at a time, and pretty soon it's a habit.  Why don't we do this?  It would be hard.  Even more importantly, it would pretty much have to rank quite high on your priority list to do it.  I guess that's why people don't.

Maybe that's why so many people think Christians are hypocrites.  Maybe they're right.

Don't be a hypocrite.
