Philippians 1:27 ” Conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the Gospel of Christ.”

Elsewhere, in Colossians 1:10 this idea is repeated, “Live a life worthy of the Lord.” So how do we live a life worthy? Well, let’s first look at all the people that poured into your life as you were growing up…all your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, coaches, pastors, and neighbors who modeled social conduct, customs, and mores…showing you how to lead your life in a positive and productive way. Thus, conducting your life worthy of Christ is much the same. As a child you followed the example they set before you…you listened to their sage advice…and you strived to emulate these special people as they modeled exemplary actions and behaviors. The same is true of Christ then…we are to so pattern our lives after Him that when people look at us, they will see Jesus.
