Most of us understand when it comes to physical health that if possible it is always better to take preventive measures rather than to have to have surgery.  In this passage Paul applies this principle to spiritual matters.  Here is his preventive prescription.

1.  Be Diligent - As believers we must constantly be attentive to God and alert to the enemies of the world, the flesh and the devil

2.  Be Doctrinal - Study, learn and apply truth consistently in life

3.  Be Determined - expect and endure hardship and persecution

4.  Be Dedicated - all things done in love

These "Be" vitamins will strengthen us spiritually as we seek to do God's will for His glory!

Walk with the Lord and use spiritual preventative medicine!!!
