One of the questions I am asked most, “Preacher, how can I be a better Christian.” My answer is always much the same, “quit trying.”
Give yourself to The Lord and His will, and allow Him to mold and make you in the image of Christ. Of course, it goes without saying that salvation must be first.
I. BE FERVENT IN SPIRIT VERSES 9, 18.
Learn to have a positive outlook on life. Learn to be a problem solver rather than dodger. Have a co-operative spirit.
- Be loyal to your Church.
- Be supportive of your Pastor.
II. BE UNFAILING IN PURITY VERSE 3.
God’s people need to keep themselves pure. Separation is standing for Christ in an ungodly world.
Anybody can live in isolation or give in to the devil. Romans 13:14 ” But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].”
2 Corinthians 3:18 ” But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
