Apostle Paul encouraged Christians to stay away from activities that can send mixed messages and mislead other people.
They must present themselves as good examples for other people to follow.
Paul used food as an example and said,
“…Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble” (1 Corinthians. 8:13).
Lesson on Christians Presenting Themselves as Good Examples
Christians must be good examples for other people to emulate.
It is certain that everyone does not have the same measure of faith.
Some have strong faith while others struggle with their beliefs.
Also, some young believers model few others that they consider to be more spiritual.
Those followers can be tempted to sway any direction based on their examples they follow.
Therefore, everyone should consider it an obligation to be cautious as he or she practices Christianity.
The fact that Christians must be good examples for other people to emulate cannot be overemphasized.
All Christians – both young and old should carefully exercise their liberty in God.
Every Christian must ensure to live an exemplary lifestyle that will glorify God since some known and unknown protégés may be following.
Prayer of Grace to Lead by Good Examples
Dear God, please make me a good Christian, and let me be a good example for other people to follow.
Help me not to be a stumbling block for other people’s grace and salvation.
Let me faithfully and carefully serve you so that other people can witness this and glorify your holy name.
I am also praying for my fellow Christians throughout the world that you please grant them grace to present themselves as good examples that will glorify your Holy Name.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
