Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What makes a great Christian leader? The Holy Spirit emphasizes three things in this passage:
  1. They teach others the word of God.
  2. They live as great examples for others.
  3. They have observable faith.
God puts each of us in unique positions of influence with our children, friends, coworkers, relatives, neighbors, and brothers and sisters from our church. What kind of spiritual leadership are we showing them?

My Prayer...

God of all grace and Father of all compassion, please empower me through the Holy Spirit to be a better Christian leader to the people you have put in my sphere of influence. Strengthen me as I seek to live a life worth imitating. I pray this in the authority of Jesus and his mighty name. Amen.
