A Christian is one who has come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and is living his or her life to please the Master. Christianity is the life of Christ which transforms a person inwardly and manifests outwardly in the clear view of everybody. The one who has come to Christ is a new creation. He must no longer live like he used to but rather depict the new kind of life he has received.
The Christian life must be lived 24/7. There should be no segregation between the sacred and the secular. The way a person lives his or her life outside the four walls of the church tells to a large extent the true identity of that person. Our Scripture reading for today admonishes us to do everything to the glory of God. This means that God is interested in all that concerns us. Since our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and God dwells in us, we must make sure that if God were physically present, He would be excited with the way we conduct ourselves. The way we eat, drink, dress, dance etc. are all very important to the Lord. We should not think that there is any aspect of our lives that God is not interested in.
Throughout this week, we will be looking at the subject, “Full- Time Christian”. Do you consider your Christian life as a ‘full-time occupation’? Do you see God as someone who is only interested in your spiritual life and uninterested in the other parts of your life? Since the Christian is fully owned by God, even the most insignificant things he or she does is of great interest to the Lord.
