THE EVIDENCE

“Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, so that your progress may be evident to all.” 

 – 1 Timothy 4:15 NKJV

A gardener’s skill is often judged based on how beautiful and well taken care of the garden is. Achieving such results requires consistent dedication to planting, watering, weeding, and overall plant care. Excellent results don’t just appear; they are the product of behind-the-scenes work. 

This is the essence of evidence: your unseen efforts produce visible, tangible results that everyone can appreciate.

Similarly, from our anchor text, Apostle Paul advised his young protege, Timothy and by extension, all believers. He emphasised that consistent dedication to studying, reflecting on, applying and practising the word of God will lead to visible spiritual growth and maturity in the faith. 

This is the mindset we must adopt as we advance in our spiritual walk. In  Joshua 1:8, the bible also mentions that we will only record good progress by regularly meditating on God’s word and obeying it.

The evidence of our profiting results from what we have discussed over the week. We see that by building consistency in prayer and bible study, we carefully reflect on and internalise the truths of the gospel, as well as the principles of Christian living. So in committing ourselves wholly to the practices of the teachings of the Christian faith, we not only assent to these teachings but also uphold them as a way of life to be embraced and embodied. 

However, the benefits extend beyond ourselves. Our evident progress and profiting is also a demonstration, to all observers, of the gospel’s transformative power at work in our lives. When we yield to the working of the Holy Spirit by applying ourselves to the truth of God’s word, we give room for Him to produce His fruits in our lives (Galatians 5:22). This not only strengthens our faith but also serves as a powerful testament to the truth and efficacy of the Christian faith. It is also an example for other believers, encouraging them on their spiritual journeys.

Remember, the Christian life is not meant to be a solitary pursuit. As Hebrews 10:24-25 reminds us, gathering with fellow believers allows us to stir up one another to love and good works. Seeing each other’s growth motivates and inspires us on our paths.

Dear believers, let us be intentional! Let’s commit to continuous growth by studying the Bible praying regularly and living out what we learn daily. As we do this, our progress will become evident; a beacon of hope and encouragement to others around us.
