Living A Holy Life Is A Process–#6

God is waiting to show you the way.

God is waiting to show you the way.

7 Remember your leaders who taught God’s message to you. Remember how they lived and died, and copy their faith. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 9 Do not let all kinds of strange teachings lead you into the wrong way. Your hearts should be strengthened by God’s grace, not by obeying rules about foods, which do not help those who obey them.–Hebrews 13:7-9 (NCV)
Not only is Jesus our example, we have many others in the Scriptures. People who were inspired by God to write His Word so that it would be passed on from generation to generation even down to us today. We must keep our hearts and minds focused on Jesus and His Word and not be led astray by strange and false teachings. We are not to be caught up in discussions about rules and the traditions of men. They are useless and will only serve to push people further away from the Gospel. Jesus Christ never changes and neither should the message that we speak and give life to by our lifestyle. Our speech and lifestyle should be the same as Paul’s. 1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.–1 Cor. 2:1, 2 (NKJV)
