Read: 1 Peter 2:9-12
In one of my favorite Peanuts cartoons featuring Charlie Brown, the always confident Lucy declares, How could the world be getting worse with me in it? Ever since I was born the world has shown a distinct improvement!
Of course, Lucy is displaying an unrealistic and elevated opinion of herself, but she makes an interesting point. What if we were to try to make the world a better place by displaying the love of Christ wherever God has placed us?
When Peter wrote to persecuted believers, he advised them to [keep] your conduct honorable (1 Peter 2:12) by doing good deeds that will ultimately bring glory to God. In other words, we can make our world a better place through our actions. Think of the difference that Christlike deeds of love, mercy, forgiveness, justice, and peace would make in our world. Ive always thought that if we lived out this verse, people might say, Our office is a better place because ______ works here. Or, Our neighborhood is a better neighborhood. Or, Our school is a better school.
We cant change the entire world singlehandedly, but by Gods grace we can let the difference Christ has made in us make a difference in the world around us.
Woo-Hoo Connie, let the tunes begin! (((HUGS)))
