Imitate Me

indexI have a thought or two that I would like to share with you, and I hope they are worth remembering. In Hebrews 13:7-8, there is a challenge to, “remember your leaders who have spoken God’s word to you. As you carefully observe the outcome of their lives, imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

This is a Triple A (AAA) section of Scripture, that has some great principles for us:

• The admonition is not to forget but to remember: Is there congruence between the words and actions of the leaders and the principles of God’s Word?
• The advice is to scrutinize their lives: A marathon is not won in a charismatic lap but through the discipline of the miles.
• The action to obey: Imitate their faith.

I’m hopeful that this thought will keep you thinking: What would the world be like if everyone imitated your faith?
