Godly Living Costs


 

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution,” 2 Timothy 3:12.

 

Have you ever been in a place where you knew you did not belong? There are times when we are like splinters in the flesh. When you get a splinter, your body lets you know there is something foreign embedded in the skin that needs to be removed. If it is not removed quickly, your body will do what it can to fight against it until it is finally pushed out of the skin.

 

This world is a dark place and those who are followers of Christ are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14). Our job is to shine the light of Christ into the darkness through our good works so that people around us may come to bring glory to God. What happens when light penetrates darkness? Evil is exposed. It is a sad reality that people in darkness are enslaved to the works of darkness and become comfortable in the darkness. When we are obedient to live godly, there will be friction between us and the people around us who have chosen to live according to their own morality. This tension may come to a head in different ways, but if a child of God is living according to godly standards, there will be hostility. If you are not experiencing hostility from others because of your faith, you may need to ask yourself if you are pursuing Christ wholeheartedly. If you are experiencing persecution because of your faith, take heart and count it a blessing to experience a taste of what Christ suffered on behalf of us.
