Think about this for a moment…to the world, as a Believer in Christ, you are either a good or bad example. You are either imitating Christ-like behaviors, or acting like the rest of the unsaved world. You are either allowing yourself to be crushed by the weight of trouble and affliction, or embracing with heart and mind the Good News of the Gospel Message. We are to be imitators of Christ and model Him to all we come in contact with…Believers and unbelievers alike, or as Paul exhorted Timothy, “Set an example for the Believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.” (I Timothy 4:12) The world is watching you and how you react to tribulation. Is your conduct worthy of the Gospel?
