It is easy to forget that we represent the Lord. So much comes our way and we are tempted to give into our flesh. Paul wants to us to remember that all of our conduct should be worthy of what the gospel is. What he pinpoints here is a unity you don’t find anywhere else. Satan is very good at dividing the church over many trivial things, which is why Paul says that we are to strive together for the faith in the gospel.
Something that sets us apart from the world is the unity that we have in Christ. Let that be a conduct that the world sees in us that they would desire!
Resting in Him,
Pastor Sean Boehm
