Be An Example

Timothy was a young preacher. Maybe some older men in his church thought that Timothy was too young to be a leader. Paul wrote to Timothy and encouraged him to be faithful and to continue serving God.

We find Paul’s advice to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12. “You are young, but don’t let anyone treat you as if you are not important. Be an example to show the believers how they should live. Show them by what you say, by the way you live, by your love, by your faith, and by your pure life.” Paul encouraged Timothy
to live in a way that showed his faith in God. By doing this, Timothy would be the leader God wanted him to be.

Being a Christian means that you should always do the things God wants you to do. Examine your life. Ask yourself these questions: Am I living for God at home, at school, at work, at the mall or when I am driving? Do I live for God every day of the week and not just on Sunday? Am I doing what God wants me to do?

The best way to lead other people to Jesus is to be an example for them. Your true faith, your communication and your actions will show others that you love and serve God. Be an example for Him today!
