1 Peter 1:15-16 (NASB) "but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;"As I put on the fire department uniform, I thought back to the day when I never envisioned I'd be part of a group of men and woman willing to lay down their life for others! I had seen my dad in his uniform growing up and never realized what it really meant until it was my time to wear it! Today's verse speaks about holiness, something that seems to be forgotten! Just putting the uniform on wasn't enough, I had to let my behavior model what so many who had gone on before me did. My conduct both on and off the job reflected the department so I needed to watch my step and my words. When we say that we are followers of Christ, we are in a sense putting on His Uniform and we need to act that way as well. Wearing holiness is part of that uniform which means our actions will speak louder than our words! Let's watch our behavior out there and bring Him the glory! peace, tom
