Follow me as I follow Christ

It was the apostle Paul who told the church at Corinth to, “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1 – NKJV)

But say this was you speaking to Corinth. Say this was you striving to be the example. What would be the three “top things” that you would hope the Corinthians would see in your life that could be attributed to a major characteristic of the life that Jesus lived?

Share your thoughts! I’m interested in hearing what you have to say.

Is God Showing Through In Your Life?

Here’s a great little article that’s entitled: Is God Showing Through In Your Life? I don’t know the author and I don’t know where it came from, but it’s worth passing along and using if you’re able.

A little girl, on the way home from services, turned to her mother and said, “Mommy, the preacher’s sermon this morning confused me.”

The mother said, “Oh, why is that?” the girl replied, “Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?” “Yes, that’s true,” the mother replied. “He also said that God lives within us.” “Is that true too?” she asked. Again the mother replied, “Yes.” “Well,” said the little girl, “If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn’t He show through?”

I like that little girl’s way of putting it. If God lives in us, then there’s no way of keeping Him from “showing through.” That’s the essence of Christian living – living in such way that people around us will see God in our lives.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

Is God showing through in YOUR life?

If you know who wrote the story feel free to speak up in the comments and I’ll give the credit where credit is due…

…and remember to shine today!
