For the good name’s sake of Christ – which cannot but be dearer to you, if saints, than your lives – look to your walking, and especially your civil converse with the men of the world. They know not what you do in your closet, care not what you are in the congregation, they judge you by what you are when they have to do with you.

William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour


It is true that we are not of this world and are not to be stained by it. However, God has commissioned us to go into the world so that we might bring sinners to Christ.

As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. (John 17:18)

It’s important to remember that people are always watching and judging your conduct; you can either attract people to your faith or repel them. One of the surest ways to push them away is to behave the same as they do. Hypocrisy is highly damaging to Christ’s name, and non-believers are keen to notice it. Today, live out your faith sincerely and represent the kingdom well. You might get the opportunity to affect someone.
