Today's Verse : Philippians 3:17


March 17, 2012

Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take
note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you.
-- Philippians 3:17

"I would rather see a sermon any day, than hear one." I'm not
distressed because people want to "see a sermon," but because so
many of us don't "practice what we preach." As leaders -- whether
as friends, parents, or in positions of authority -- our primary
tool of influence is our life of character (or lack of it). Do you
practice what you "preach"? All of us who seek to influence others
redemptively, MUST! Why? Because most folks need to both hear and
see the message before it becomes a part of them.

Lord God Almighty, please forgive me, equip me, and make me fit
for your service. Please help me, dear Father, as I try to live a
life worth imitating and to lead others to Jesus. I know I can't do
either of those without your power and grace transforming my life.
In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
