BE AN EXAMPLE – I Timothy 4:12

BE AN EXAMPLE – I Timothy 4:12

“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.” 

“In order to succeed, we must give ourselves wholly to our work for God. In answer to prayer great gifts had been communicated to Timothy, but he had to give heed to them, use them, and stir up the slumbering embers of the fire, kindled at his ordination. It is worthy of notice that the Apostle’s injunctions do not include a single allusion to priestly or sacramental service, but urge to boldness of character, 1Ti 4:12; diligent study, 1Ti 4:13; rigorous orthodoxy, 1Ti 4:16; and the daily self-watch of the soul.”
