“Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.” (Phil 3:17)
Paul told Timothy, “but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” (1st Tim. 4:12). A spiritual person must live an exemplary life because he is to show others the path of God. People can see perfection in Christ and can read about Paul, but they also need to see God’s Power in God’s people in whom they can watch and talk to. They need to see virtue, humility, unselfish service, a willingness to suffer, devotion to Christ, courage, and spiritual growth in the life of those who name Jesus Christ. There should be conviction in the heart of every Christian to be the kind of examples that brings glory to God. It is extremely important to teach the truth, but it is equally important for that teaching to be under girded by a virtuous life. Godly people are vital to the church, because demonstrate God’s power to an unsaved world, as well to young Christians. Have a great day!
