1 Timothy 4:12 (AMP)
Let no one look down on [you because of] your youth, but be an example and set a pattern for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in [moral] purity.
Paul tells Timothy to be an example in faith. The bible tells us in
Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)
Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].
To walk in faith means to take God at His word and not to rely on what you see. It is to walk by faith and not by sight. Abraham is the father of faith because he took God at his word and he believed. Our faith is to be activated and then demonstrated through our actions for faith without works is dead. To be an example in Faith to the believers we must first know the word for faith comes by hearing the word of God. Hearing alone is not enough we must the believe what we hear and then demonstrate that by how we live our life.
Faith is a key building block in Gods kingdom because we are saved and considered righteous by having faith in Christ Jesus.
Are you a man or woman of faith or do your actions tell a different story?
May you and I be quick to hear, understand and act in faith on God’s word and instruction so that we may be an example to the believers in faith.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God, how rooted are you in the word?
Faith is demonstrated by what we say, do you speak possibilities or fear?
Does your life demonstrate your faith in God’s word?
I will be an example to the believers in FAITH. I will practice what I preach. I will demonstrate my faith through my works because faith without works is dead.
