Useful to the Master - Part 6

EXTRICATE (cont'd.)

** What are we to do when we meet such a godly example?

We are to imitate their faith! (Hebrews 13:7) Even the apostle Paul repeated that same concept to the Corinthians when he said, "Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ" (1Corinthians 11:1). Paul shows us that the best godly example to follow is Jesus Christ Himself.


** What are the seven components of Worshipful Conduct?

1) Desire Godliness - obey the Word
2) Continue in the Truth - guard the Treasure
3) Accept God's Wisdom - daily application of Truth
4) Teaching - living in response to doctrine
5) Reproof - stopping sinful behavior
6) Correction - living life in a new direction
7) Training in Righteousness - spiritual growth


** In this series we have come to understand the importance of avoiding "Worldly Chatter", because that form of arguing only lends credibility to the heresy of false teachers.

** We have seen that "Wise Correction" is possible as we gently and humbly proclaim the truth of God's word and pray for Him to grant repentance to the hearer so that they may come to the knowledge of the truth.

** We have learned that the love of self in the last days will provide the "Widespread Challenges" to the truth of God's word. Since we are seeing that in today's world, we should be compelled to be prepared to offer a defense to anyone who is brought across our path by the Lord.

** And finally, today we saw that our "Worshipful Conduct" is the stamp of integrity needed so that the Truth we share can be distinguished from the heresy of false teachers.

** All of this wonderful information, when aggressively applied, will make us "Useful to the Master".

Is that your desire?


** Last week I asked you to count the cost of being prepared for the Master's use, knowing that is was going to infringe upon your daily routines. Today I asked, "How do you spend your time?"

As you try to apply what we have learned in this series, let me invite you to do an audit of your time this next week so you can see how this series has changed your usefulness to Christ.
