Beware Nazi’s on the moon!
At first, the person’s tweet stream on Twitter was flowing with insightful encouragements from the Bible.
Then the content of his tweets suddenly changed. Dramatically so!
The person launched into dire warnings about Nazi’s planning an attack from their base on the moon. Needless to say, the credibility of this person with regard to what they have to share instantly took an immediate nose dive. A good start ended in an abrupt crash of the person’s credibility.
That’s because living a credible life requires consistently living the truth.
By living the truth consistently, we present to the world a credible witness that brings glory to God. That’s why scripture implores us to be consistent in living out our faith.
“So, my dear brothers and
sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the
Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless,” 1 Corinthians 15:58.
“3 And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. 4 If someone claims, ‘I know God,’ but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. 5 But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. 6 Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did,” 1 John 2:3-6.
Are you living out the truth in such a way your life is a credible witness for Christ? Or is your life inconsistent and unreliable?
