When your life exemplifies integrity, you are a positive witness to those you interact with. People notice that you are different and ask themselves, “What is it that stands out about that person?” We do not act this way for their recognition, but that they may be drawn to Christ. This is especially important in our desire to bring about peace and social change to those around us.
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
Titus 2:7–8 (NIV)
Those who are unfamiliar with Christianity, have never attended Church, or are ignorant of the Bible may wonder what makes Christians different from the rest of the world. As Christians, we still face temptations; we sometimes falter, and are poor witnesses by giving into the same sinful behaviors of the world around us. Admit your mistakes, ask for forgiveness, and seek God’s strength to do better the next time. Stay true to your beliefs and do your best to live faithfully one day at a time. As world changers and peacemakers, you are making an impact on those who are watching you, and you want to shine Christ so they have no reason to question your stand as a Christian.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” Matthew 5:16 (NIV).
This week, practice self-reflection to evaluate if your life, both your inward thought life and outward behavior, points others to Christ and represents Him well. Think more deeply about these things with regard to promoting social justice and social change.
Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace” Numbers 6:24–26 (NIV).
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” Matthew 5:9 (NIV).
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” John 16:33 (NIV).
