Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2: 11-17
This week, Pastor Louie Giglio walks with us through one of the important ideas in scripture: all of us who call ourselves Christians are on display, living among the lost, and most of us are the only representation of the Gospel that the people in our worlds will ever see. So how are we living that out? What are we actually putting on display with our lives?
