Hem leadim staka pipol wea olketa nara pipol ting daonem olketa for kam long hem and Son bilong hem. (John 6:44) Olsem example, hem leadim wanfala Pharisee wea nem bilong hem Saul for kam long hem. Saul hem man wea ‘tok spoelem God, spoelem pipol bilong hem, and hem nating showimaot respect.’ (1 Tim. 1:13) Bat Jehovah lukluk long heart bilong Saul and hem lukim gud samting.

Taem iumi encouragem brata or sista bilong iumi for gohed gud long spiritual wei, hem olsem iumi waka tugeta witim Jehovah.
