Titus 2:7- “In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing incorruptness, gravity, sincerity,” (KJV)
Devotion: It’s easier to tell someone what to do than it is to lead by example. Modeling our beliefs is much more impactful and makes the value ingrained deeper in all who see our example. Telling others what and how to react takes the choice away from them. God will speak to them and who them the error of their ways through your behavior alone. Set the example and let all you do be a reflection of Him.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” ~Romans 1:16
It is the lack of religion, lack of holy living, that makes the young backward. Their life condemns them. They know they do not live as Christians should, therefore they have not confidence toward God, or before the church.
If the mind and heart are full of the love of God, this will be revealed in the conversation. It will not be a difficult matter to impart that which enters into our spiritual life.
Never be ashamed of your faith; never be found on the side of the enemy.
