Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
I found this awesome reminder from John Mac Arthur's book, " Truth For Today". Thank you GOD for your precious WORD!
1 Peter 4:14 says, If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
A pure conscience provides tranquility and vindicates you when you are slandered. It will be free from the task of pointing out any sin, and your godly life will prove any criticisms to be false. When you have a pure conscience, the verbal abuse and insults against you bring shame to your accuser, not you.
The world self-righteously condemns Christianity when it can point to a Christian who has scandalized the faith. Unbelievers enjoy drawing attention to a sinning Christian so they can justify their own sinful behavior. Therefore, live above reproach so that the unbeliever's accusations will be without any foundation.
GOD bless you all!
