Christian Must Be Moral and Portray a Good Example
Passage: Philippians 4
Christians are required to be honest in their relationship with God; they must be godly role models that are suitable for other people to emulate. Christians must understand that unbelievers are watching our behaviors to derive motivation for serving God. Believers must not fail our due diligence of positively influencing the unbelievers and leading them to become God’s worshipers. The scripture emphasized,
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8).
Believers to Serve God with Pure Motives
Christians must serve God with a pure motive and portray a godly example for other people to emulate. Christians’ services must satisfy God. Our practices must motivate other people to love and serve God as well. Christians must understand that we have an obligation to live the exemplary lifestyle for other people to emulate (especially the unbelievers).
Despite the need to meet the pious obligation of faithfully serving God and leading others with godly examples, Christians still face the reality of being powerless without the help of the Holy Spirit. Believers will not have enough strength to adequately meet the mandate to be a true ambassador of Jesus Christ. Christians, like other humans, have weak nature that cannot easily comply with the standard of God. We must rely on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to adequately serve God and positively influence others.
Christians’ ability to faithfully serve God and be good examples for others depends on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Seek and pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit.Click to tweet
To have the ability to faithfully serve God and offer godly leadership for other people, Christians must daily pray to receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God will also offer us divine guidance to make an appropriate decision and honor God. The Holy Spirit will indeed properly guide and aid us in meeting the standard of God which include an ability to faithfully serve him on earth and befit his kingdom.

Christians should consider it an important matter to pray for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to meet God’s requirements and appropriately serve him.
Ask God to make you a good example for other people to emulate. May you ever remain a true ambassador of Jesus Christ!
Prayer for God’s Grace to be a Good Example for Others
Dear God, please I need the help of the Holy Spirit to be a good Christian that faithfully represents you on earth. Let your divine Holy Spirit guide me to live in compliance with the Bible standard so that I can prosper! Please let me be a good example for other people to emulate. Also, let my services bring glory unto your name and ever keep me worthy of your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here
