Live so that you don’t have to feel you’ve done anything wrong. Some people may say evil things about your good conduct as believers in Christ. If they do, they will be put to shame for speaking like that about you. It is better to suffer for doing good than for doing evil if that’s what God wants.
I Peter 3:16,17 (NIRV)
1 Peter 3:8-22
In this day of computers, iPads and cellphones
We’ve another way others to greet.
It makes me shudder
When I see what we utter
When we text, update status or tweet.
Are we showing the world who we really are?
Can they see Christ flowing through us?
Or are we getting caught
On this peer pressure float
To be funny or stir up a fuss.
Others are reading what we have to say….
Who we follow and pictures we post.
May we help others grow
And tweet things to show
We are filled with the Holy Ghost.
What would Jesus post? What would Jesus tweet
If He had a Facebook page?
We could touch boys and girls
And change our world
W.W.J.D. would be all the rage.
It won’t be all that easy and we’ll be criticized
Some will pooh pooh our efforts as dross
They will laugh and joke
And fun at us poke
But we’ll get our point across.
Dear Lord, help us be a positive influence on our world in all we do. Help us show others how happy a true Christian can be. Help them to want what we have in Jesus’ name.
