In Love, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another”, (John 13:35). Do you have an attitude of active good will toward others?
IN WORSHIP, “And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer,” (Acts 2:42). “Continuing daily with one accord in the temple,” (Acts 2:48). “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and truth’” (John 4:24). Do you give God the priority of your time on Lord’s Day, and do YOU give YOURSELF in worship?
IN BEING CONCERNED ABOUT THE LOST, “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ,” (Acts 5:42). “Therefore they that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word,” (Acts 8:4). “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature,” (Mark 16:15). Do you take advantage of every opportunity to speak up for Christ and His Church? If not in word do you exemplify Christ in deed?
IN OUR ATTITUDE TOWARD OTHERS, “Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons,” (Acts 10:34). “For there is no respect of persons with God, (Romans 2:11). “He created every race of men of one stock, to inhabit the whole earth’s surface,” (Acts 17:26). Do you treat everyone as you would like to be treated?
IN SERVICE, “Among you, whoever wants to be great must be your servant, and whoever would be first must be the willing slave of all—like the Son of Man; He did not come to be a ransom for man,” (Matthew 20:26-28). Are you rendering a service for the Lord’s cause that is helpful and profitable to others?
