Be An Example

I wrote a little bit the other day about being an ambassador for Christ. And when we talk about being an ambassador for Christ, we USUALLY refer to being that to non-believers so that they may see who Christ is. But that doesn't mean that we shouldn't be that way to those who already believe... I wanted to write bit more today about being an example - but this time, I want to focus on being an example to believers.

Paul writes to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12, "Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, and in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine..."

As Christians, we are well aware of the fact that we need to be a good example to non-believers, but we don't often think about those who are already followers of Christ. In truth, we need to be just as much of a good example to them as we are to non-believers. Paul gives us a whole list of areas here in 1 Timothy where we need to make sure we're being a good example. We need to be a good example in our words, our actions, our love for one another, our spirits, and by keeping ourselves pure.

  1. You first need to select the positions on your North Face Jackets leather jackets to place patches. You can select locations such as the back of your jackets. Arms are also a very good place to position your patches. Belstaff Bags You can position your patches that you think it will look its best. Just don't place them over seems and pockets. You can use measuring tape to align your patch straight if you want. Otherwise randomly placed patches also give a good look. You can just add patches and leave the rest of your leather in the same way if you want. Cheap Ugg Boots But there are tons of other ideas too to make custom leather jackets.
