Johns words for reflection this morning remind me that everyone won't understand or get our lifestyle as children of God. We will always encounter people on both side of the spectrum and everywhere between. We will encounter people who expect us to be perfect and others who will question our devotion to God in worship, praise and daily life. This is because as John says we "recognize that we are God's children" so there is something different about us. While we are not perfect we aspire to live a life free from sin and of love. The fact that we devote time to spend with God and abstain from things that would cause us physical or spiritual harm we still live fun and fulfilling lives.
Today as we walk outside our homes to face the world, remember who you are and whose child you are. When others approach you making decisions about who you are based on your faith recall today's reflection, and remind yourself that everyone won't understand us or our way of life.
P.S. Still take a moment to witness, testify or spread words of encouragement and evangelism with whomever you encounter.
Be. Well, Pastor Sirchester.
