1 Timothy 4:16
Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
You have a responsibility with the words you speak. You have a responsibility in how you live out My Word as well. My Word is not up for interpretation, so don’t take it out of context and distort it to fit what you yourself desire it to say. Know My Word and stay close to Me so I can reveal understanding and insight to you. Study and dive deeper and look to Me when someone says something that doesn’t seem to match up with what you know is from Me. Speak the truth and don’t back down or shy away. I am with you and will give you the words when you need them. Persevere in this, it’s all part of your life-journey… let you light shine so brightly and clearly that those who see you know they have also seen Me. Your words are powerful… they can shed light on the truth of who I am, or they can lead My sheep astray. So watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
