“For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.”1 Peter 2:15-16 NASB
The freedom we have in Christ is not to be used to indulge in sin and the grace of God is not a license to sin. We are called to be holy because He is holy. People should know that we are followers of Jesus Christ by the way we live our lives.
In this world we will be persecuted and we will be falsely accused. But we should live our lives in such a way that they are above reproach. The greatest testimony to the truth of God’s word is a life that is transformed and filled with His love, grace, and mercy.
