1 Peter 2:15-17
15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
God has chosen us, set us apart and called us His holy people. That truth sets us apart with the power and ability to do good in all the areas of our lives. We are free, unincumbered, unrestrained and unleashed, but our freedom is never a license for self-indulgence or evil. We are no longer slaves to this world but to God Himself and He longs for us to conduct our lives in holy goodness in every expression and relation of life.
Father, Thank you for loving me and setting me free to live as your child. Help me to walk through the days of my life expressing your truth and values in every way. May my life bring you honor and cause everyone I encounter to be confronted with your goodness, for you are worthy of all the praise of all creation. Amen.
