We all know what it’s like to see another believer do or say something that erodes his or her Christian testimony and, therefore, his or her influence for Christ.

Sadly, we also know that we’ve done the same on more than one occasion.

We can’t undo the past.

But we can do better in the future.

Better lives are depending on us.

That’s why it’s important that we heed the Apostle Paul’s example as described in 2 Corinthians 6:3-4.

“We live in such a way that no one will stumble because of us, and no one will find fault with our ministry. In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God.”

God wants people’s souls to be saved into a life of serving Him and serving others.

The Devil wants people’s souls to be lost in a deteriorating life of serving self and influencing others to do the same.

“How will my choice influence another closer to God?” seemed to be at the top of Paul’s mind based on the passage above.

Let’s embrace the same guiding principle for how we live and make decisions.

In everything we do, let’s show that we are true ministers of God.

Help the needy.

Hug the hurting.

Listen to the lonely.

Flee temptations, especially that stumbling block sin that seems to follow you like a shadow.

Forgive. Even the repeat offenders.

And with every action, try to humbly explain the motive of doing for others what Christ has done for us.

As always, I love you
Martin
