Have you ever felt uncomfortable living out your Christian faith in front of people that don’t believe?
Jesus said we shouldn’t hide our light. Why do you think many Christians feel like they need to hide their faith in God?
In life (conduct)
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. -1 Timothy 4:12
To set an example in life means to set an example in your conduct. Why does the world need Christians to set an example in life?
Do you think Christians as a whole do a good job at this? Why or why not?
live a holy life. -1 Thessalonians 4:7
be holy in all you do -1 Peter 1:15
What are your thoughts on the world “holy?” Have you ever thought of yourself as Holy?
To be holy means to be set apart for God. What does it look like practically for us to live set apart?
How would these areas of your life be different if you decided to live a holy life, set apart for God?
- Entertainment (movies, Netflix, etc)
Many people’s attitude toward sin in their life is, “how much can I do before I get hurt?” or “how far is too far?” How might the attitude of someone living a set apart life for God be different?
And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus – Colossians 3:17
What does it mean to be his representative?
Have you ever thought of yourself as a representative of Jesus?
Think about the different groups of people you spend time with during the week. (Friends at your lunch table, teachers, people on your team, in your band, etc.)
- Be honest with yourself; have you been a good example of Christ to them?
- How could you improve?
