1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. When we live the Christian lifestyle we are supposed to set a good example to other Christians as well as to the rest of the world who is always watching. I am amazed at the number of Christian people who think it is fine to do what the world does and go where the world goes and then think it will not effect their testimony. Someone told me that I should go to the Casino and eat their buffet because it was very good and wasn't very expensive. I told them that I would not want to be seen going into any part of a casino. In the first place I don't want to contribute to their success in any way but if someone were to see me go in they would have no way of knowing that I was just going there to eat. We are to abstain from all appearance of evil. Living the Christian lifestyle means abstaining from all appearance of evil.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
