Imitate their faith

baton

Today’s Verse: Hebrews 13:7 Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. NASB

Do you remember the person who shared the Good News of Christ Jesus with you? We stand, as Christians, on the shoulders of humble giants who have gone before us. Their faithfulness in sharing their faith and hope with us has saved our very lives! What a debt we owe. I like it when song leaders give us some background on the lives of those who wrote the hymns and songs we sing in worship. They were regular people struggling just as we do to live lives in accordance with God’s standard. They had disappointments and challenges and stories that at times sound more like folk lore, yet they persisted and out of their struggle and faith were born such wonderful songs of praise to our God. We lift up worship and praise on the shoulders of these. I pray that we will be well remembered by those in whose lives we have made some small difference. Can you remember those who taught you and led you to the Lord? Have you thanked God for their faithfulness and example lately? Do you imitate their faith?

May God bless your heart as you seek His.
