Walking Worthy

Phi 1:27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel
of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent,
I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit,
with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

The word conversation means: "General course of manners;
behavior; deportment; especially as it respects morals."
In other words, it is not just our words and what we talk about,
it's our whole life. How do we live worthy of the Gospel?
Let's look at some attributes of the Gospel. The Gospel is
very simple. So we, should be simple in our lives. We do not
need a life of luxury. We do need to do things that put us in
the spotlight. The Gospel boldy proclaims the truth. We are to
be bold in proclaiming Christ to others. The Gospel is Holy. To live
worthy of the Gospel we must be holy. We must never excuse sin
in our lives. We must shun the things that are in our life that may
hinder us from living worthyof the Gospel. These things may not
necessarily wrong but if they hinder us,they must be destroyed.
Not only are we to abhor evil, we are to cling to that which is good.
(Romans 12:9) For Christ's sake and our own sake we must strive
for our conversation to be worthy of the Gospel.
