Today’s Sunday School lesson offered a study of the words “Be Ye” in the Bible. These scriptures present a good example of how Christians are supposed to live their lives:
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The word perfect in this context means complete.
I Peter 1
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
The word conversation in verse 15 means behaviour.
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
The passage above in Luke is nearly impossible to follow unless someone has received the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tounges, and then prays every day.
Several other scriptures that offer more “Be Ye” examples:
Matthew 10:16 – Wise
Luke 12:40 – Ready
Romans 12:2 – Transformed
I Timothy 4:12 – An Example
I Corinthians 4:15-16 – Followers
I Corinthians 14:20 – Children
I Corinthians 15:58 – Steadfast
II Corinthians 6:14-18 14 Not Unequally Yoked, 17 Separate
Ephesians 4:31-32 – Kind
Ephesians 5:1-12 – Followers
Colossians 3:12-17 – Thankful
James 1:22 – Doers
James 5:8 – Patient
