1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

Take Not the Name of the LORD thy God in Vain

Deuteronomy 5:11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Praise God, praise the Lord, Alleluia, Amen. These are the words we usually uttered in public most often or many times daily although we don't mean it. It's like an slipped of the tongue.

I usually hear these words in the Office from my born again friend to let us know that she is of God.

Just finding a lost ball pen, she will announce it with pride, praise God. Even for a small favor from an office mate, she will say it loud, praise the Lord, Alleluia, Amen.

Just a belch (throwing out of gas from stomach) after meal, she will announce it with pride, thanks God!

What men should see from a believer is the good works.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Thanking God always for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ can be made by a prayer & spiritual songs.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

In fact the ears of the Lord is open to the prayer of the righteous.

1 Peter 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.

I remember years ago, while attending a retreat, we are asked to make a prayer request addressed to God with our signature on it. They placed the letter in the altar and burned it. They said, it's like a burnt offerings made unto God.

Now I realized, for fear of Him, I will never again take His holy name in vain. Even writing His name on a piece of paper.

Psalm 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
