The Gospel of Christ. There is an idea that if you come with a full bucket, you won’t be able to add any more water. In Philippians 1:27 (KJV), Paul states “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;” Does your conversation or conduct demonstrate your confidence in the gospel of Christ? Everything that you do should be framed with the question “what does God want me to do in this situation?” You can’t find out if you come to the word with a full bucket. You can only find out by reading the word, studying it, and meditating upon it which afterwards will put you in a position to let the spirit of God teach you. Every situation in life is presenting you with a choice whether or not to respond your way or God’s way. Our conduct or behavior should demonstrate confidence and be worthy of the gospel of Christ which is the specific good news of His completeness as declared in the Mystery. It’s in this body of truth that Paul explains how we are complete with Christ in the heavenlies, far above, seated at the right hand of God. Once the Christian truly believes and understands just how complete we are in Christ, then your conduct will show your confidence in the faith in the gospel of Christ.
