“Setting the Example”

On August 27, youth members spoke on 1 Timothy 4:12.

There is a difference between imitating and being an example. We can always copy someone’s actions or words, but if we are an example, it is not just copying—it is who we are. There are many Christians who just copy actions that they think would be right…but when you get them alone, they are different all together. Jesus does not want us to “copy” an example; He wants us to “be” an example. Our life needs to match what we say we believe. Paul is telling Timothy, in 1 Timothy 4:12, that leadership is a matter of Godly character. Come and listen as your very own Oak Hill UMC youth—Carson Bragg, Sydney Fontenot, and Lauren Spencer—share how God cares about “who” you are more than “what” you say you are!
