“Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.” I Peter 3:1-2 NKJV
Only God knows how much we spend as a church organizing events, on publications, and on being on media monthly; of course, they are very effective means of propagating the gospel, but just imagine how many souls will be won if everyone of us lives life in such a way that exemplifies what we teach.
Action speaks louder than words. It’s true. Many times our messages have no impact because people cannot see us live out what we preach! You’ll be shocked to know that lots of people are afraid of even dealing with pastors! When I got a place for church, the landlord insisted on meeting me first before sealing the deal. Why? He said that he had had a number of unpleasant experiences with pastors!
Brothers and sisters; how we live our lives with either encourage people to believe our gospel or put stumbling blocks in their paths. How you relate with your coworkers matter; how you behave in class matters; your attitude in the bus, in the market, and everywhere else matters. Be consistent; live every second being conscious of the fact that “all eyes are on you”.
