All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
There are believers whose behaviours and lifestyles are unbecoming of Christians. Their uncommendable behaviour is manifested in the way they treat other people. It could be those that work for them, or with them, or it could even be those who are senior to them; their character and behaviour are such that aren't worthy of emulation.
Your behaviour must be exemplary. Please the Lord in your dealings, and not yourself. If your manner of life is inconsistent with the Word, you can't experience the anointing of God's Spirit in your life as you should! Your life won't glorify God! It'll be like "sowing among thorns." The thorns will choke the crop.
How clean is your mind? How clean are your thoughts? How clean are your desires? It's important that you renew your mind with the Word, and be sure that your affections, choices, thoughts and desires are in line with the Word. Be a true Christian, in heart and in action.
The Word of God has been given to us to check our actions, motives, thoughts, and desires. The Scriptures have been given to us to build, train, instruct, and correct us in the life of righteousness.
Let God's Word guide you. As you give yourself wholly to the Word, it'll transform your life and help you form the right character and mind-set. It'll get rid of all the wrong stuff and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Jesus said, "Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you" (John 15:3). The Word of God will purify and sanctify you.
Even now, the Word is carrying out His ministry in you, cleansing you and taking you to another level of glory. Make up your mind to live the Word and express the righteousness of God. Discontinue anything in your life that's inconsistent with God's Word. Live the true Christian life.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your eternal mercies and love. You've called me to show forth your praises and express your righteousness in the earth. Therefore, I yield myself to your Word, living out the divine life that you've given me, to your praise and glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
|| 1 Thessalonians 4:7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. ||
|| 1 Peter 1:14-16 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. ||
