Practice these things, be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all.—1 Tim. 4:15.
“If we live in God’s teaching, pursuing him every waking moment, everyone [will] see your progress. A life growing progressively close to God, dynamically changing, cannot be hidden. Christianity is not a matter of creed bun of life.
Timothy was to lead the way by pouring himself into Christian life and ministry. The church would respond because it would see progress, the authentic presence of Christ in his people.” – Knute Larson
