to the Master - Part 4
WORSHIPFUL CONDUCT Page
Our worshipful conduct is defined by the new direction in our life,
provided by the Word.
cf. 1Peter 2:1-2
7) Training in Righteousness - This is where the rubber meets
the road of our Christian life. The word of God is seen as the instrument
that will train us to reflect the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Look
with me to what Kind David had to say regarding our training and the
word of God. All see - Psalm 119:9-16, 105-106
Our worshipful conduct increases as we are trained by the Lord, through
the power of His word. cf. 2Peter 3:18
V.17 ** Having learned these seven components of "Worshipful
Conduct", what is the result, fruit or outcome of such an effort?
"...that the man of God may be adequate..." The term used
here for adequate is "artios" and refers to a person who is
complete, capable and proficient in everything they are called to be
or do. Paul spoke of this concept to the Colossians. cf. Colossians
** What does living a life of "Worshipful Conduct" equip us
"...every good work"!
** If we are walking each day in humble submission to the truth of God's
word, which "good works" will we be doing?
The very ones that He selected for us to do, before the world was made.
cf. Ephesians 2:10 and Titus 2:14
** Our passage for today began with a contrast, do you recall what that
The heretical and hypocritical life of the false teacher was held in
contrast to the "known" integrity of the apostle Paul.
