1 Timothy 4:12 – Believers

1 Timothy 4:12
12
 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

-Those who are the servants of Christ in faith are here referred to as “The Believers”.  Such a simple name but a perfect summation of what we are and what God has made us:  A group of people defined not by any great act that we have done or work that we have completed; but rather, we are defined by the fact that we chose to believe in God and what the Bible says about Him.  There are many names that can be used to describe us-Servants, Disciples, Workers, etc.  But before any of those can apply to us, we must first be a Believer.
