    Default Living A Life Above Reproach. Jesus did this on Earth. Here is how :)

    I will list some verses and also a list of qualities that place a man (or woman) above reproach.

    Reproach = The expression of disaproval or disappointment in someone .

    To be found faultless, to be so garmented in goodness that fellow man can find no reproach with your approach, roaming, exit of doing things. Beginning, middle, end of your Godly example to others will show goodness, discipline, control, through witness, or, teaching, or, however the Lord sees you to do things.

    Sounds like exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit , love, peace, longsuffering, self-control, kindness...?

    Yes ! Spiritual maturity brings fruit from our Spirit-led walks, and, living above reproach, being
    able to be found blameless, faultless, is 'this' kind of fruit-bearing living

    Want to be in the will of God?? STRIVE to live your life--through God working in you--above reproach.

    2 Philippians 2:13-15 -- For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation among whom you shine as lights in the world.

    Ways of living above reproach, for your 'tongue' shall lead you:

    Titus 2: 7-8 -- in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say to you.

    You can do it, be men (and women) in demand. Be like Jesus! Above reproach

    Traits of a man of God, who is striving for being above reproach

    1. a well-rounded man (a summary of, and balance among, the points below) 2. Above reproach – a man of good repute 3. The husband of one wife – morally pure 4. Temperate – balanced in words and actions 5. Prudent – wise and humble 6. Respectable – good role model 7. Hospitable – unselfish and generous 8. Able to teach – communicates sensitively in a nonthreatening and nondefensive manner 9. Not addicted to wine – not addicted to substances 10. Not self-willed – not self-centered and controlling 11. Not quick-tempered – empty of anger that becomes sinful 12. Not pugnacious – not abusive 13. Gentle – sensitive, loving and kind 14. Peaceable – nonargumentative and non-divisive 15. Free from the love of money – nonmaterialistic 16. Manages his own household well – a good husband and father 17. Loving what is good – pursues godly activities 18. Just – wise, discerning, nonprejudiced and fair 19. Devout – holy, devoted to God 20. Self-controlled – disciplined

    Without God, we have nothing. With Him, we have everything we ever need, and, more.

    Is compassion compassion at all if it's not based on the Truth ?

    The Holy Spirit leads ALL believers lives, wants to. Are you letting Him lead yours ?

    God bless your days !

    There is not a man (or woman) on the planet that does not need to work on these things, franklyspeaking

    And, we need help.each other as fellow brothers will struggle with these things, keeping them, we need to be there for each other, helping us grow in our approach toward being above approach. That is not an easy thing to do, but these things work us toward being holy as He is holy. The Lord leads

    God bless, Christ bro, simply walk with Him as He lives in you and you will be well on your way of being 'approachable' to all men and be nary in need of correction in word or deed.

    P.s. Your humbleness in your post will lift you up, that will indeed help to make your approach into Heaven with excellent landing

    Greenie, my Brother, that is all it broils down to, just walking the path set before one with the Spirit as your guide. Amen..

    If your life is spent in a constant struggle to avoid sinning, then your life is void of praising God for that deliverance you already have.

    Praise and struggle not

    now we need to make a list for women many of the same traits with a few changes in words..

    .I think I remember reading Proverbs and psalms about women not being gossipers, naggers, proud, to be clothed in good works and not costly gems.
