Just One Thing

"Just one thing: live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ" (Philippians 1:27a, HCSB).
There will be times when no one agrees with you. There will be times when you don't even know what direction in which you should go. There will be times that you are misjudged. Welcome to the world of leadership.

Over the last few weeks, I have been reminded again that there is one thing important: to live my live in a manner worthy of the gospel, regardless of the outcome, the criticism, or the response.

I don't know what you may be going through but this I know: God knows and He has a plan. His plan for us may unfold before our eyes or it may not; regardless, we are to live in a manner worthy of Christ. Today be reminded to keep your head up and facing heaven. Know that He is in control and no matter what, live out a Christ-filled life. Focus on this one thing and God will give you ways to share what He is doing in your life.
