Do Your Best (2 Tim. 2:15)

  1. To read and understand what the Bible message is. “…understand what the will of the Lord is,” (Eph. 5:17).
  2. To respond to that message with personal obedience. “…Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you,” (Lk. 6:46). “Be doers of the word,” (Jas. 1:22).
  3. To respond just as described in the New Testament. “…practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you,” (Phil. 4:7). “…Do everything in the name of the Lord,” (Col. 3:17).
  4. To worship God, as He has directed. “…worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth,” (Jno. 4:23,24).
  5. To honor – with your participation – what the New Testament says about being with and working with other Christians in your area. “…joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love,” (Eph. 4:16). “…not neglecting to meet together…,” (Heb. 10:26).
  6. To share the gospel with your friends and family. The first Christians “did not cease teaching and preaching that the Christ is Jesus,” (Acts 5:42).
  7. To expose sin and offer the remedy. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them,” (Eph. 5:11).
  8. To be engaged from the heart with your family. “Husbands, love your wives… Let the wife see that she respects her husband … Children, obey your parents … Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord,” (Eph. 5:25-6:4)
  9. To love your neighbor. “Love your neighbor as yourself,” (Mark 12:31).
  10. To be nourished with the Word of God in such a consistent way, you never stop growing spiritually. “…long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation,” (1 Pet. 2:1).
