1 Peter 2:12(NIV)--Live such good lives among pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.
When people around you are doing wrong
Be a witness by doing right.
If someone says you did something,
and you didn't,
just hold your head up
and be a witness
by showing your love for Jesus.
Shine His light through your good deeds.
Witness by not conforming
to the ways of the world.
When others live immorally,
you witness by not following
their immoral behavior.
Be concerned with the right conduct
even if others cut you down for it.
No one is perfect, but we strive to be.
Witness the best you can
as often as you can.
Others will eventually wonder how you do it,
and then your witness succeeded.
Then you can tell what
gives you your hope and joy.
You will glorify God
by living as Jesus did
so others will come to Him
and be ready for His second coming.
Romans 12:2(NKJV)--And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
