Godly Evidence

2 Corinthians 1:12-24

Paul's statement in 2 Corinthians 1:12 drew me in and got me thinking about how my life and actions do or do not demonstrate that I have chosen to follow Christ.

"For our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you."

As you think about your life as a follower of Christ, what's one example of how you have behaved with simplicity and godly sincerity in the past week? Tami

I want to think I was looking out for others and trying to keep a godly attitude while I was running about errands this past weekend. That is the real question though, in the end it is the way we behave really is the evidence of Christ in us. Sadly, many times in the past, I have overlooked this and my testimony has suffered. I think we must ask God to daily show us how to die to our own selfishness, and guide us to show grace to others even when its difficult.

We were blessed to have a young lady as our guest last night at church who is preparing for a year of missions work in Northern Ireland beginning in January. With the hard feelings between Ireland and Northern Ireland caused by the bitterness and past wars between Protestants and Catholics, the new church she'll be working with has a sincere desire to display what authentic Christianity really looks like in the community where they're at. It was quite encouraging to hear how they're already behaving with integrity and Godly sincerity, and we're excited about what she'll do along with them.
