This is part of the series The Life That Honors God, from 1 Timothy. Check out more from the series!
Right now, we are finishing up a series, where I am sharing five different aspects of The Life That Honors God. This series, based out of 1 Timothy chapter 4 and chapter 5, is all about how to live a life that makes a difference to others, but most importantly, to God. Click on the link in the box above to see the introductory post, with links to all five aspects.
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve looked closely at five different areas that Paul encouraged Timothy to excel in. My encouragement to you is to do the same thing. Take these five areas and invest them into your life. Practice these until they come naturally to you. And then practice them some more.
But as you do these five things, keep the proper attitude.
Philippians 2:3-11 says this:
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
