CONCLUSION As we have examined these qualities you should remember that these are not just for elders. Yes, elders must live up to these, but that does not excuse you from meeting them as well. Just because you may not desire to be an elder or can’t be doesn’t mean you are off the hook from seeking to live a godly life. The moral qualifications should describe all men and women that are Christians. It should be a standard that you should be striving to obtain. Charles Naylor said, “The Christian life is, and ever will be, a life of separation from sin and pride and worldliness. If you are not willing to be thus separated, then you should have common honesty enough not to profess to be what you very well know that you are not. If you are going to be a Christian in name, then be one in reality. Your character, not your profession, will be what will matter in the final judgment.” Romans 2:6-8, “He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.”
