Scripture of the Day - July 31, 2012

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me...

 Jesus is giving us power, not so we use it for selfish gain but so we can be a witness unto Him. Paul explains that we are ambassadors for Christ, 2 Cor. 5:20.  Your life is a Bible for those who don't know God's word. Are you an ambassador or an embarrassment for Christ?  My husband was at a certain place with some of our church members. He was so embarrassed because of the vulgar talk coming from one of them that he left. Now imagine how Jesus feels. 
Folks this is serious business. Professing to be a Christian yet talkins like a street walker ought not to be so.  How you conduct yourself is important. Your speech is important. James warns that the tongue wields great power. James 3:2-7  Paul instructs us to watch the way we talk, to let nothing foul come out of our mouths, to have our words benefit those who hear. Ephesians 4:29  Peter instructs us to have a meek and quiet spirit, (not loud and obnoxious) 1 Peter 3:4
Ask yourself, am I an ambassador or an embarrassment?
