This is the third of a three-volume series called, Mentoring His Way - Disciple Twelve based on the "Twelve Characteristics of a Godly Life." In this third book, we learn about the four "Lifestyle Characteristics if a Godly Life."
Having a Servants Heart - I serve others, I do not expect them to serve me.
The first lifestyle characteristic of a Godly life is about having a servant's heart and meeting the needs of other people. We have been primarily concerned with how we can, through God's Word, and by adapting His Word to our lives, achieve spiritual and personal maturity, in the process of conforming to the image of Christ.
Serving Christ in the Workplace - I serve Christ in the workplace. I do my best for God's glory, not man's.
The second lifestyle characteristic of a Godly life is understanding how we are to conduct ourselves in our place of employment. As Christians, we must exemplify Christ's character on the job. Whether our workplace is an actual office, within the home, our ministry, or volunteer work within the community, the same principles apply.
Trusting God's Provision - I know that God supplies all my needs according to His riches, not mine.
The third lifestyle characteristic of a Godly life is to exemplify God's attitude about money; both in the acquisition and the proper use of it. To look at God's attitude concerning our finances we will take a detailed look at the Scriptures.
Living Purposefully - I live Christ's life on purpose, not by accident.
The fourth lifestyle characteristic of a Godly life is learning how to live Christ's life on purpose, instead of by accident. We need to be like the Apostle Paul. He said, "This one thing I do." He lived Christ's life on purpose. He knew what God had called him to do. He set his course to fulfill that purpose. We must live our lives with the purpose of becoming Christ-like in all we do.
Volume One covers the "Spiritual Characteristics of a Godly Life."
Volume Two covers the "Personal Characteristics of a Godly Life."

About the Author
This book has not been written by a perfect man or by one whose life has always been a model for others to follow. Roy's life has not always been easy. He, like all true Christians, has been and is a work of God "in process." We may call this Roy Comstock's "Prison Epistle," since much of this material was written while he was serving a prison term.
Roy experienced major failure to his marriage, his business, and his personal life because of his misguided focus on self rather than on Christ. But Roy repented and turned to Christ in a deeper way than ever before. He cried out to the Lord concerning his own life, and the Lord responded not only to his needs, but also taught him insights that can be of great help to anyone who desires to truly follow Jesus Christ. It was during his time in prison that the Lord revealed many of the principles that Roy calls the "Twelve Characteristics of a Godly Life."
Roy and his wife Sarah, live in Valencia, California.
