PRESCRIPTION FOR PERFECTION
TEXT: 1TIMOTHY 4: 12
â€œLet no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purityâ€ (1Timothy 4: 12).
After many years of walking with God, Abraham was told by Him, â€œI am the Almighty God; walk before me and be thou perfectâ€ (Genesis 17:1). There was no Bible study syllabus to follow but he made it. Today we have the full Bible as our guide in the holy walk. The lyrics of this hymn, â€œLet Others See Jesus in You,â€ seem to reflect our text of today and the requirement for perfection: â€œWhile passing throâ€™ this world of sin, And others your life shall view, Be clean and pure without, within, Let others see Jesus in you. Your lifeâ€™s a book before their eyes, Theyâ€™re reading it throâ€™ and throâ€™; Say, does it point them to the skies, Do others see Jesus in you? Fellow pilgrim, do others see Jesus in you? Godâ€™s word is the prescription for perfection. Study, meditate on and obey Godâ€™s word. Preach the gospel and be a light to unbelieving youths, pointing them to Christ.
Challenge: Study and obey Godâ€™s Word for your perfection.
Prayer: Help me Lord to be an example of believers.
Quote: Godâ€™s word is the prescription for perfection.
