From the Kitchen Table

Victorious Living Day 43

Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God. For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake, engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.  Philippians 1:27-30

Paul writes, “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ…”  Our courage is wrapped up in our conversation.  Your manner of live is your conversation in life.  The Holy Spirit is telling us to let our citizenship be evident by our conversation.  There won’t be courage where there is criticism, condemnation and carelessness.  Life happens, we live in a fallen world and words, wrongs and weaknesses can discourage.  Discouragement is the dagger of the devil.  Let your conversation be the courage of your convictions.  We walk through this life with our words.  Paul writes, “so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, and not frightened in anything by your opponents.”  Let your conversation bring courage into the room.  It’s becoming, inspirational and victorious.  Want to see the victory?  Talk about it with your words and your walk.  What we talk about reveals who we’re walking with in this life.
