Galatians 6:2-5, 14-16

2 Share each other’s troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3 If you think you are too important to help someone in need, you are only fooling yourself. You are really a nobody. 4 Be sure to do what you should, for then you will enjoy the personal satisfaction of having done your work well, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. 5 For we are each responsible for our own conduct. 14 As for me, God forbid that I should boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world died long ago, and the world’s interest in me is also long dead. 15 It doesn’t make any difference now whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we really have been changed into new and different people. 16 May God’s mercy and peace be upon all those who live by this principle. They are the new people of God.

The world is full of enticements. Daily we are confronted with subtle cultural pressures and overt propaganda. As Christians, we must learn to live in this world and still stay connected to Jesus Christ. We can only do this through the power of the Holy Spirit in us. Our conduct reflects how connected we are. We are each responsible of our own conduct. It is our choice. We decide how much of the world we let in. When we accept the salvation of Jesus Christ, our interest in the world should die. Our own desires are crucified with Him. We are changed from the inside out. Our conduct reflects this change. What are others seeing in you? Do they see you interested in this world or in Jesus Christ? What is your conduct saying to those around you? Make sure you conduct yourself as Christ would. Remember He did not use His power as God while He lived as a Man in this world. He used the power of the Holy Spirit under the direction of God the Father to live. He is our example and we are to live as He did.

Have a God Day!
