I came across a brief video clip of C. J. Mahaney. He was offering advice backstage at the 2010 SBC Pastor’s conference. His simple advice was from 1 Timothy 4:16: “Watch your life and doctrine closely.”
I empathize deeply with C. J.’s concern. It is much easier for me to watch my doctrine than my life. I must be careful to pay close attention that the information I gain about God results in a life transformed to look like Christ. The result of any knowledge about God is a life that bears much fruit for His glory.
A timely reminder.
