Philippians 1:27 "Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel." (ESV) In this scripture Paul was reminding the community to always behave in a way that would show others that they were Christians. He reminded the faithful that they were to set good examples all the time; not just when they were among the other believers. We would do well to follow this advice ourselves. No matter if we are at church in at our jobs on a week day we must hold ourselves to a high standard of living. We must let others see our Christian values even when we are not in a religious setting. Further, it is important to stand with others and support and encourage them. Christians should look different to the world. Let's work hard to make that happen.
