Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Philippians 1:27
What a great passage to commit to memory and use as a motto for life. Whatever happens … good, bad or otherwise … whether I understand it or am totally clueless … whether it is fair or unjust … whether I like it or not … whatever happens as I pass through life may I conduct myself in a worthy manner.
May my actions, attitude, behavior, thought life, that which I look at, that which I think about, those I associate with, everything I do, may my conduct be worthy of the gospel … worthy of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
Worthy of Christ means no room for retaliation, no resentment, no bitterness, no criticism, no murmuring but instead kindness in exchange for hatred, blessing in response to attacks, humility in the face of arrogance, not returning evil for evil.
What a great passage to post near the door so every time we exit we are reminded, “As I go today, no matter what happens, I want to conduct myself worthy of the message I bear; the good news of Jesus Christ.”
