Today's Verse: Hebrews 13:7

Friday, May 31, 2019

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
— Hebrews 13:7

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What makes a great Christian leader? The Holy Spirit emphasizes 3 things in this passage: 1) they teach others the word of God; 2) they live as great examples for others; and 3) they have observable faith. God puts each of us in positions of influence with our children, our friends, our work acquaintances, and our neighbors. What kind of spiritual leadership are we showing them?

My Prayer...

God of all grace and Father of all compassion, please help me to be a better Christian leader to the people you have put in my sphere of influence. Empower me to have a life worth imitating. In Jesus' name I ask this. Amen.
