PRESCRIPTION FOR PERFECTION
TEXT: 1TIMOTHY 4: 12
BIBLE TEXT:
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1Timothy 4: 12).
After many years of walking with God, Abraham was told by Him, “I am the Almighty God; walk before me and be thou perfect” (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, “Let Others See Jesus in You,” seem to reflect our text of today and the requirement for perfection: “While passing thro’ this world of sin, And others your life shall view, Be clean and pure without, within, Let others see Jesus in you. Your life’s a book before their eyes, They’re reading it thro’ and thro’; Say, does it point them to the skies, Do others see Jesus in you? Fellow pilgrim, do others see Jesus in you? God’s word is the prescription for perfection. Study, meditate on and obey God’s word. Preach the gospel and be a light to unbelieving youths, pointing them to Christ.

Challenge: Study and obey God’s Word for your perfection.
Prayer: Help me Lord to be an example of believers.
Quote: God’s word is the prescription for perfection.
