Be Exemplary (Feb. 19th, 2019)

"...but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity." (1 Timothy 4:12)

The summation of the Spirit's admonition through the Apostle Paul in our opening verse is for us to be exemplary. Don't be a Christian whose behavior and lifestyle are questionable. Some people's wrong behavior could be seen in the way they treat other people-- whether it be their staff, their co-workers, or even their superiors. Their character and behavior aren't Christ-like.

In your life, make up your mind to please the Lord always and in everything, and you'll walk in the fullness of His blessings. It's still the beginning of the year; take time to do a review of yourself-- is your manner of life consistent with the Word? If not, make a change so you'll experience the glory of God's Spirit in your life as you should!

Be sure that your mind and your thoughts are clean. Have pure desires and motives. Renew your mind with the Word, and be sure that your affections, choices, and decisions are in line with the Word. Be a true Christian, in heart and in action. Use the Word to check your actions, motives, thoughts, and desires.

The Scriptures have been given to us to build, train, instruct, and correct us in the life and way of righteousness.

(2 Timothy 3:16)

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness"

Let God's Word guide you-- give yourself wholly to it, and it'll transform your life and help you form the right character and mindset and get rid of anything that's wrong.

(John 15:3)

"Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you." (The words of Jesus)

The Word purifies and sanctifies. Even now, that's what's going on in your life: the Word is cleansing you and taking you to a higher level of glory. Make up your mind to live the true Christian life and express the righteousness of God in all things and in every place.


My life is for the glory of God. I'm called to show forth His praise and to express His righteousness on earth. I'm a light in a dark world, living out the divine life that I have in Christ, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
