Invitation: Living like a Christian effects all areas of life: relationships, marriage, character. What is the Lord doing in these areas of your life? Are there changes by God's grace that need to take place? It is time to demonstrate in reality what Christ has done inwardly in your life. Let us live like Christians, publicly and privately.
