But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

We are called to put on the new man, and another essential quality that characterizes the new man is to be a giver and not a taker. We need to put off stealing; but it is not enough to stop stealing, we need to also start giving.

If you are a Christian, your life is one of continual transformation into the image of Christ. But if we are to be transformed, we need to know the foundation of that transformation. If we fail to understand the foundation, then we will fail to have a Christ-like transformation.

Put Off Lying Falsehood Featured

Written by

The Bible calls us to put off the old man with his practices, and one practice, in particular, is lying. Interestingly, one of the reasons Paul tells us to put off lying is because we are members of one another. When we lie to others in the church, it damages our fellowship with them. If we are...
