As others look on, your family, your friends, your co-workers and your neighbors, does the Lord have any concern for His Name in your life?
Do we represent Him well? Do we magnify and reflect His reputation well or do we tarnish it in the eyes of others?
How about among strangers? When someone cuts you off on the expressway or is rude to you at the store or whispers behind your back, do you give God reason to be concerned for His holy Name?
I hope you understand what I am saying and what I am NOT saying. I am NOT saying God is up in heaven wringing His hands, worrying about what to do. I am NOT saying that our areas of failure do not fall under the cleansing blood of our Savior. THEY DO.
If those around you were to describe your God, how close would they be to the truth?
