SAINTLY BEHAVIOR


The believers or followers of Christ are called Saints and are to act like it. What does the Bible say about saintly actions? In the next few blogs, we are going to examine this question.

John 10:3-4

English Standard Version (ESV)

To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.            Attentive to Christ’s voice!

Philippians 2:15 (KJV 1900)

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;  Blameless and harmless!

Proverbs 28:1

The wicked aflee when no man pursueth:

But the righteous are bold as a lion.    Bold!

Romans 13:3

3 For rulers are not a terror to egood works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and fthou shalt have praise of the same:   Bold!   

Isaiah 66:2 (KJV 1900)

2  For all those things hath mine hand made,

And all those things have been, saith the Lord:

But to thisman will I look,

Even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit,

And trembleth at my word.

Isaiah 57:15

Amplified Bible (AMP)

15 For thus says the high and lofty One—He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin].

Isaiah 66:2

Amplified Bible (AMP)

For all these things My hand has made, and so all these things have come into being [by and for Me], says the Lord. But this is the man to whom I will look and have regard: he who is humble and of a broken or wounded spirit, and who trembles at My word and reveres My commands. Saints are to have a humble and contrite heart!
