This is Ron Moore with today's Bible Minute.
The way a believer lives their life really matters. It matters how we conduct ourselves within the walls of our home and in the wide-open view of our communities. It matters how we do marriage. It matters how we parent our children. It matters how we interact with our neighbors. It really matters. It matters how we treat our employees and work associates.
These things matter because other people are watching. Here in 1 Peter 2:12 Peter writes this: "Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us."
You see, God uses your good deeds to get the non-believer's attention. And then He's the One who closes the deal with eternal salvation.
