If you claim it, walk the walk

'Whoever says he lives in Christ [that is, whoever says he has accepted Him as God and Savior] ought [as a moral obligation] to walk and conduct himself just as He walked and conducted Himself.' (1 Joh 2:6 Amplified Bible -YouVersion)

There are many people who don't go to church, and still believe. Yet they won't necessarily claim they live in Christ.

You would expect that people who do go to church, are the ones saying they live in Christ.

Great! There is nothing wrong with saying you live in Christ. It is commendable.

However, as the verse in 1 Joh 2:6 (see above) says, if you make the claim: a moral obligation comes with it. To walk and conduct yourself as Christ walked and conducted Himself.

That is quite an obligation.

Let's pray to keep walking the walk, and to remind ourselves of how our Saviour walked. May our behaviour as church people not be the reason why believers don't go to church. May our church be the place where members find strength and inspiration to walk their lives as Christ walked.
