THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Ya know, “trimming figures” is what some people do when they tell their age.
A doctor was examining and elderly lady.
He said, “Ok. You tell me you have shooting pains in the neck, dizziness, and constant nausea. Now, just for the record, how old are you?”
She said, “I’ll be 49 on my next birthday.”
He said, “Hmm....slight loss of memory too!”
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Paul, in the Scripture above, was writing to Timothy.
He was telling Timothy that his life should reflect maturity.
The manner in which he lived his life should give no one an occasion to make snide remarks about how young he was.
Our ministry has to do with spiritual maturity.
Our ministry has to do with studiousness.
And, our ministry has to do with how we APPLY what we’ve learned.
This is good advice to ALL young Christians.
Be and EXAMPLE of faith to ALL believers.
How do you accomplish that?
STUDY! LEARN! GROW!
Be an example in “word, conversation, love, spirit, faith and purity!”
Young Christians of today, other young people need to SEE your spiritual maturity!
