Be An Example

You are a visible light and you bear My name. You have a responsibility to be an example to others.

1 Timothy 4:12
Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Your light should be shining so brightly that it can be seen in the midst of the darkness that is all around. You have a responsibility to be an example to others. You are a visible light and you bear My name. So many taint My name, but I expect your words and actions to match My Word with how you conduct yourself in this life. Lift your eyes to Me and follow My lead, I am the perfect example. Stay on the path that has been set before you. Let them see you as you are… real and vulnerable, let them see your mistakes and flaws. But let them also see who you turn to and how you react. You must be different and set apart, you shouldn’t look like the world in how you handle the stresses and circumstances of life. The essence of your ordinary life will show the miracle of My grace. And this is what will draw them to Me… when you are My example in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith and in purity.
