Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?
This widely known question is a soul-stopper. The answer to it reveals a lot about our personal relationship with Christ and about what we are doing to invite others to have their own personal relationship with Him.
Scriptures tell us that the world will know we are Christ’s disciples by our love for one another (John 13: 35). When the world observes our love, then we will make a difference.
This is what God wants us to do: make a difference. This is what each one of us wants to do: make a difference.
What is the best way to make a difference? The best way to make a difference is to walk in love. What is love? Check out I Corinthians 13: 4-8.
When we walk in love, we will bear much fruit, the kind of fruit god wants us to bear. This fruit is described in Galatians 5: 22: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.
Are you making a difference for Christ? Check your fruit.
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
