The Marks of a Christian - Do What is Honorable
If you are a follower of Jesus, your life should have outward marks that reflect your inward convictions. These marks signify that you live your life in a way that imitates Christ.
Another distinguishing mark of a Christian? Giving thought to doing what is honorable in the sight of all (Romans 12:17b).
The first idea here has to do with our thought life. We are to think about what we do. Intentionally. With focus.
Intentionally think about what? What is honorable in people’s sight.
Honorable means respected. Prized. Valued. It comes from giving sincere thought to making sound decisions - ones that bring glory to God and honor others created in His image.
Whatever you do in life, think seriously and intentionally about how honorable your actions may be.
Then, when you choose to do what is honorable, others will see it. They will take note. Being honorable becomes a way of witnessing our love for Jesus to others.
This type of honor is priceless and valuable.
And it always brings great glory to our God.
