The Challenge…..

Your life may be the only Bible some people read.  ~Author Unknown

Who doesn’t like a challenge?  I personally love them….it’s the competitive nature in me.  Now, I know that the New Year was technically last Saturday, but I needed some time to really think about my resolutions.  I wanted them to be life changing; not just some tweaking, but a major overhaul.  So I’m taking this verse that has left an impression on me since reading it a few weeks ago, and making it my resolution.

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”  (1 Timothy 4:12)

The verse talks about 5 areas in our lives that we need to take seriously, as we are living and breathing examples to others.

  1. Speech
  2. Behavior
  3. Love
  4. Faith
  5. Purity

My next 5 posts will talk about what God says about these areas and how we can live them out in the world to best exemplify Christ.  A little more in depth than just your run-of-the-mill resolution, huh?

I will leave you with a quote from one of my favorite movies, Jerry Maguire,
