In 1 Peter 3 we can read “Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you're living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy”.
Do you talk about your faith? I have to admit that I could do more than I do now. People are in search of genuine, authentic believers and when we are able to articulate WHY we believe what we do, transformation can come. It is the WORD that has power and when you are able to talk to others about why you live the life of faith you live, YOU can make a dramatic difference in this world. It will serve YOU well too…let’s read on…
“Keep a clear conscience before God so that when people throw mud at you, none of it will stick. They'll end up realizing that they're the ones who need a bath.”
Imagine having a teflon coating so that none of the critical and negative words can stick to you! Again, it comes by speaking UP not looking down!
Today I want you to know that YOU matter and YOU can make a difference by just being YOU! Speak UP...look UP and lift UP. Up, Up, and away! Talk about the Lord, what He means to your life and how He has helped you through. You will help others get out of the mud and keep it from sticking to you too!
