I watched a movie over the weekend. The movie started with a young lady being murdered and her friend was the suspect. Moving forward, the murdered young girl was into drugs, sex, and whatever else. Her friend, the suspect, was not and had previously took the blame for her friend in a drug case. So when her friend was murdered, nobody believed the suspect was telling the truth. The friend was guilty by what the police saw on paper and the comments of the people, who thought they knew the suspect. She was guilty by association...
We as Christians should be guilty by association. We should be known on paper and by the people that know us, that we love the Lord. We should be associating with Jesus on a daily basis. We should be in His Word, praying to Him constantly, and loving on people daily. We should be talking the talk and walking the walk, so if we are ever in a situation that questions our character, our association with Jesus will not be an issue. There will be no doubt, we are His!! We are guilty by association, and we are glad about it!! Do not be ashamed of who you are in Christ.

Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
