Who Is Your Example?

The Christian churches of our day have suffered a great loss in rejecting the example of good men, choosing instead the "celebrity of the hour" for their pattern. We must agree that it is altogether unlikely that we know who our "greatest" men are. One thing is sure, however; the greatest man alive today is the best man alive today. That is not open to debate. Spiritual virtues run deep and silent. The holy and humble man will not advertise himself nor allow others to do it for him. The Christian who is zealous to promote the cause of Christ can begin by living in the power of God's Spirit, reproducing the life of Christ in the sight of men. In deep humility and without ostentation, he can let his light shine. To sum it all up: the most effective argument for Christianity is still the good lives of those who profess it!


Be thou an example . . . in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12


The holy and humble man will not advertise himself nor allow others to do it for him.


Lord, I pray that I will spend my time living my life for your glory and not trying to look like I am living for you only to increase my own glory. I am only the molded vessel, and you are the master.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
