While we should never hide, disguise, or water down the gospel which gives us free salvation by grace, we are also instructed to adorn the doctrine in us by our behavior.
Paul says obedience and fidelity adorns the doctrine of God (Titus 2:9-10).
Obedience is a rare trait in a society of proud rebels and independent free thinkers. Fidelity is just as rare among selfish complainers.
We live in a world of disobedience and infidelity. Set yourself apart unto the doctrine of God’s grace working in you.
Obey your husband. Obey your parents. Obey your employer. You say they don’t deserve it? What a perfect time to show God’s grace.
Be faithful to your spouse, your parents, and to your employer. You say they haven’t earned it? What a perfect time to do what’s right and show God’s grace.
We’ve all heard how unbelievers blaspheme God because of unfaithful and disobedient Christian hypocrites.
Shut their mouths, and when you open yours to share the gospel it will be better received.
For His glory,
Justin Curtis Johnson
