What a blessing it was today to hear a message of practicing the Gospel. Our beliefs are followed by our actions and the behavior of our lives ought to come from the Bible. The Holy Spirit must have complete control of our lives and is the key to Christian living. God doesn't want us to put on a show for others to see how holy we are, but just believe the gospel. Let our Christian life not only show who we are, but what we are!
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1
