Consider Carefully —
Follower of Christ, what we claim to be on the outside is what people see and should be true on the inside.
When we receive Christ Jesus as our Savior – the inward reality is that Christ’s Spirit is given to us.
Paul wrote a second letter to the Corinthian church – and he reminded the readers of an important and obvious fact.
(NASB) 2 Corinthians 10:7 “You are looking at things as they are outwardly. If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ’s, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ’s, so also are we.”
Being a follower of Christ outwardly, what other people see in my actions and hear in my words, is to be a reflection of what I am inwardly. Since this is true of me, I need to realize it is also true of other followers of Christ.
~ Take it to heart ~
Consider carefully as a follower of Christ:
My outward actions and words are to reflect the reality of Christ living in me.
