How to bear the name of your King with honor
August 27, 2015
“A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”
Perhaps you’ve heard the story about Alexander the Great when he confronted a thief in the ranks of his army. The man was brought before the great conqueror to be punished, and Alexander stood to his feet and asked, “What is your name, soldier?”
“My name,” the young soldier quivered, “is A-A-Alexander.” Furious, Alexander the Great got right in that young man’s face and said. “I could have you killed for your crimes, but I’m not. So either change your name or change your ways!”
As believers, we bear the name of Jesus Christ each and every day of our lives. Yet so many easy-believing, church-going, cultural Christians love to claim Jesus on Sunday, but live the rest of their lives however they want. They’ll say, “Oh yes, I’m a Christian,” only when it’s convenient.
But the Bible is clear in passages like today’s that we’ll know real believers by their fruits. I’m not talking about someone with a squeaky-clean sin record, but people whose passion for the Lord is evident in their everyday lives. Live each day for His glory, remembering you bear the name of the King who bought you with His life.
BEAR THE NAME OF CHRIST WELL BY SERVING HIM PASSIONATELY EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE.
