Thought of the day:

But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Reference 1 Timothy 6:11 NKJV

Paul exhorted Timothy to flee his youthful lusts. He exhorted him to follow Christ and to be an example of a Godly Man. The attributes Pail listed are evidence of someone who is following Jesus. Paul wasn’t correcting someone who had fallen into sin, he was discipling and encouraging a young man in the Faith before he slipped into sin.

We need to look at these things and ask ourselves if we are exhibiting these attributes. We should exam ourselves and ask if people are seeing these as evidence in our walks. These come into our lives through the Help of The Holy Spirit and bear witness of a changed man.

When we are able to exhibit these attributes, we are able to lead others to having a Relationship with Jesus. Of course in 1 Corinthians 13, Paul attributes love above all other things. This is not Love of self or things, but of others. We need to be able to help and guide others in their walks. Others should be able to look to us and know that we are changed men.

Are we seeking to love others like Jesus? Are we bearing fruit that we follow Him? Are we putting things off from ourselves that are of the flesh? Is there change in our lives that reflect that we follow Jesus?

Let’s seek to pursue these things that Paul exhorted Timothy to.

If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.  
It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it. We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already.
If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know. Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance.
