I reflected today in my Bible Fellowship lesson that we cannot be like a salt tablet set aside and not flavoring food, but we must be mixed in to the culture in order for us to change it. We are to be counter cultural, not changing but changing others. We are to be influencers and to make others “want to be like us” because we are like Jesus.
And, we must do this continuously. Jesus tells us in Mark 8:34 says, “If anyone wants to follow me, he must deny himself, pick up his cross, and follow me continuously.”
The NIV version of this passage adds the word “continuously” and I think this is important. Our daily walk is not occasional or just on Sundays. It is every moment of every day. It is on weekends and holidays, on vacation or when completely alone.
We must follow Jesus with all that we are at all times. Your daily walk should influence others. Be a trend setter…influence the word around you for Christ!
