Day 184. E & M Corner. Lessons on Faith.
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12.
Today’s lesson on Faith has words of exhortation for every young man or woman, especially those who have responded to the call of God, and are now in the LORD’S ministry.
The fact that we are young should not take away our role as being ‘mentors’ for others to emulate. Today many people that are called by God to proclaim the gospel are derailing from their calling because of their life-style.
This is where the word of God comes to teach us what to do, in order to maintain our calling values. Ours is to set an example for the believers. Indeed, it is a charge to keep. The way we speak, the kind of life we lead, the manner at which we express love, are they all genuine?
Then the faith we hold on to – is it faith in God or in something else? Finally the word talks about purity. How pure are we in our walk with God? All these are possible by our faith in God. Ours is live a life of faith, so that others can learn good lessons from our way of life.
Remain blessed as we continue…
