Philippians 1:27 “Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel,”

In elementary school, many of us had a conduct grade. The conduct grade was measured on how well we followed classroom rules such as, no talking, staying on task, etc. If we did well we received an “A” or “E” for excellent. If our conduct was poor, we received an “F” or “U” for unsatisfactory. 

As believers, our conduct is still being graded. This time, our conduct is being measured with the gospel of Christ. Having conduct worthy of the gospel of Christ means living in a manner that honors God, unifying ourselves with other believers, and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

We all have areas of growth, but the more we make an intentional effort to honor God with our lives, the more Christ can be magnified. One person praying with the homeless is good, but think of how more impactful we could be if we would do the work of Christ in unity. The lost are out there and the logic of God not existing is increasing. Knowing the little or a lot that we know, if we can preach Christ, spirits can be saved. 

Do what God has called you to do and align your conduct with the gospel of Christ.
