Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ... (Phil 1:27a)Now that is the way the New Testament appeals to us to live the Christian life. It does not put us under rules and regulations, or merely say that we ought to be living this kind of life because it is better than any other. Rather, it comes with its own inevitable logic and reasons. You say you are a Christian, you say you believe the gospel of Christ, very well, all I ask of you, is to live your life in the way that is becoming to that gospel. All I say is, if you believe in the fact of sin, show that you hate it; if you believe in the death of Christ, then demonstrate it. If you believe in the rebirth and the power of the Holy Spirit, let it be evident to all that this is a fact; if you really say you believe in that glory that is to come, well do you not think that it is only reasonable and logical that you should be setting your affection there and not here, and that you should be gazing on those things rather than on these? Should you not rather be hasting on to it and purifying yourself and doing your utmost to be ready for it? Only exercise your citizenship in a manner that shall be worthy of the gospel of Christ.
