FOLLOW JESUS' EXAMPLE! 4-10-2016

Over the past few weeks we have looked at the life of Jesus. We have seen his attitude toward God in doing his will. “A body you have given me, I have come to do your will, O God.” (Heb.10:7) We have seen his patience in growing and preparing for his ministry. We looked at his ministry time in doing God’s will, not seeking the praise of men. We saw his unjust treatment and his commitment to finish the work God had given him to do.  He knew God loved him, he trusted God to guide him and step by step, he obeyed!  


Apostle Paul spoke to the church; “Follow me as I follow Christ.” (I Co.11:1)  In his attitude of humility and obedience, Paul was walking out God’s will in preaching the Gospel and serving the churches.


Now we live in the 21st century, and the same challenge is given to us; whether male, female or our place in life. The bigness or recognition of our ministry is not the primary purpose.  It is taking the attitude of Jesus; “when he found himself as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient…”  I am here to do your will, O God.  Because of his faithful love for us, God will not fail to lead us. Even if we fail in some way, we acknowledge it, and he will faithfully lead on.  Our life will please God and bring glory to our heavenly father. We will share Christ’s glory for eternity.  Ages on ages his blessing will be on us.  Let us go for the best.  Run life’s race his way, and win the prize!


Little is much if God is in it. Labor not for wealth or fame.  There’s a crown and you can win it. If you go in Jesus’ name!
