Live Such Good Lives

2 Timothy 2:16 "Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly."

It is unfathomable to think that anyone would be ok with "becoming more and more ungodly". For those who have known the love of Jesus I am certain the thought of this would grieve their hearts. Only the ungodly are ok with becoming more and more ungodly.

2 Timothy 3:13 "evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived."

What would it be like if those who are called by the name of Jesus came out from among the evildoers and impostors by refusing to "indulge" in what makes us more and more ungodly? What would it be like if instead of entertaining gossip we refused to give occasion for the name of Jesus to be mocked among us?

"Live such good lives among the unbelievers that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us." 2 Peter 2:12
