THE GOOD TESTIMONY
We are the best living bible for the rest of humanity.
HOW hard it is to maintain a good image and testimony in front of the people around us! Personally, I suffer from it on a daily basis, either because of the influence that other people have on me, or because of my own carelessness, I make mistakes and sin with my bad testimony. Another aspect that I must keep in mind is the cultural issue. For example, in Europe, it is normal for you to drink wine to accompany meals. However, in Colombia, the consumption of alcoholic beverages is normally frowned upon due to the alcohol problems that our society is experiencing. They have been living in Europe for 23 years and the style of dress, fashion and dealing with people is quite different with respect to or compared to Latin America. For example, I do not have a problem with tattoos or wearing very tight clothing, in fact, I like to wear them. But I am aware that for the culture of my country, it would be quite extravagant, I could even pass for being an effeminate person to wear them. For this reason, and as a simple example, maintaining a good testimony is quite difficult.
“NOW WELL, IF YOUR BROTHER IS ANGUISHED BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU EAT, YOU NO LONGER BEHAVE WITH LOVE. DO NOT DESTROY, BECAUSE OF FOOD, THE BROTHER FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED.”
Let us pray together: Loving God, the only example you should follow is that of Jesus of Nazareth. I have a hard time following your example Jesus Christ, that's why I ask you, increase my faith and, with it, I will be able to get closer to your height. Holy Spirit, help me.
Therefore, we must understand that we are, in many cases, the only Bible that people are going to read and see. That is, we have thousands of eyes that are watching every step we take, every word we say, every morsel of food we eat. They look at us how we sit, how we drive, how we work, how we respond, how we observe, what we say, etc. Honestly, the list is too long and restrictive to try to label it in mere written lines. Each of us must reflect on every second of our lives, to see if we are being a good witness to others.
“IN A WORD, DO NOT GIVE ROOM TO SPEAKING EVIL OF THE GOOD THAT YOU PRACTICE, BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT A QUESTION OF FOOD OR DRINKS BUT OF JUSTICE, PEACE AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.”
Let us pray together: Jesus Christ, I so long to be able to follow your example even if it costs me horrors to do so. I understand that your lifestyle is the only one that guarantees me in front of all humanity. For this reason, I beg you, give me to love as well as to do your Holy and Perfect Will.
Yes, the Christian life and the good testimony that we must give is not easy at all. Therefore, we have to cling to the hope that we have through the Mind of Christ acting in each one of us. Let us remember that we are active agents of the Kingdom of Heaven, and every second of our lives is highly involved with the people around us and our good testimony will be the best and exclusive message of conversion to Christianity that they will have. Let us therefore take advantage of this circumstance to passively evangelise all those around us.
God bless you. Remember to share this text to as many people as you can.
