WHAT IS YOUR LIFESTYLE?

Matthew 5:13-16
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith
shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

The good works of the body of Christ are to shine for all to see. We live in a glass
house. Our lifestyle is in the open for the world to see. We should live before men
in a fashion that draws them to the Lord Jesus. We are to offer our bodies as
living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God this is our spiritual act of worship. We
are not to conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by
the renewing of our mind.

Romans 12:1-2
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your
bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Knowledge alone will not produce a Christ-like character. It must be lived. The
knowledge we gain from God’s Word must impact our hearts and show us of the need to obey what we have learned.

We have to live our lives in such a way that the world will “want” what we have.

Only by remaining focused on Christ and His word and being obedient to Him can we expect to be salt and light to the world.

God's desire is for all of us to become more like Christ. We do this by growing in
our knowledge of Christ. We cannot grow to be like someone we don’t know. The
deeper our knowledge of Christ, the deeper our understanding of Him, and the more like Him we become.

Becoming more like Christ should be the desire of every believer, because God has the same desire for us.

Romans 8:29
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Making us Christ-like is God’s work, and He will see it through to the end.

Philippians 1:6
6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:


We were free to surrender our life to God.

Romans 10:9
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in
thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

We are free from sin.

Romans 6:11
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto
God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We are free to grow in grace and knowledge.

2 Peter 3:18
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Character is defined as strength of moral fiber. A.W. Tozer described character as “the excellence of moral beings.” As the excellence of gold is its purity and the
excellence of art is its beauty, so the excellence of man is his character.

2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed
away; behold, all things are become new.

We are a new creature in Christ Jesus and all things have become new. We are free from our old lifestyle. We are free from our old way of thinking. We are free to live a life of holiness before our God. We are free to reign in life by the one
Jesus Christ.


Until next time, KEEP THE FAITH !!!!!!!
