In an age of moral decay, may you and I live a life that pleases God and is beyond reproach. Deputation is more than raising money for the field, it is an opportunity to spiritually challenge and encourage churches. Our power is not in an outline or illustration but in God. May we be vessels that God can flow through.
Are You Living a Clean Life?
Stay away from sin. We are in a day and age where the easy and availability of sin is literally at our finger tips. Ask God to grow your character. Psalm 15 is a wonderful portion of scripture that deals with the inner man and character. A good friend of mine, Austin Gardner, teaches that before our “do” level is our “be” level. Who are you really? What do you do when no one is watching? Why is that important?
One day you will be in a place where you can do, watch and be whatever you want without anyone knowing you. What will you do? Put accountability into your life. In every area be accountable. In your devotions, work schedule, computer, family, etc.
Many Christians greater than you and I have fallen for a lack of accountability in their life. If you have problems in your personal life, you will be a reproach to the work of Christ on the field. Do not let the little fox of your personal life destroy God’s work.
