Am I Worth Following?

25 Oct

This past weekend we made another trip to Greenville for our monthly MIP sessions. Despite the traveling time, late nights and early morning, the weekend went very well. I am so thankful that the COG has such great speakers and that they are giving up there personal time to pour into us. We are all on a great journey… one that will transform and mold us into the ministers that God would have us to be.

I was touched by many speakers this weekend but one in particular (or a video more so) really made me think. Tim Ross made the comment “Are you WORTH following?” That is really deep…. and touching. In the grand scheme of things, AM I WORTH FOLLOWING? Does my life show God and if someone followed me for the day would they be led to God?? Yes, as minister’s (or Ministers wives) we want to say that we are perfect and we NEVER do anything wrong but that is highly doubtful! The deeper meaning of this question is— Would MY life lead the un-Christian to Christ?

I yearn to be the best Christian, leader, and ministers wife that I can possibly be but we all fail. We all say something or do something or think something that may not be Christ-like. This is where I WANT to be better. I WANT people to be led to Christ through my life. I want people to look at me and say “WOW! I want to be like her!” And no, I am not speaking of look, dress, or act like me, but have the faith that I have.

So… in the grand scheme of things— are you leading a life worth following??

    “I want people to look at me and say “WOW! I want to be like her!” And no, I am not speaking of look, dress, or act like me, but have the faith that I have.”

    Before people can be compelled to share the faith that we have I think they need to see (just as we did) Gods great love towards them! Seeing Gods love towards US can sometimes make people curious or even envious of us but seeing gods GRACE towards us makes people feel like it’s possible that God could love them too!

    Am I worth following?

    It’s for sure that I am, but what’s more important is can I connect with you and relate to you personally by sharing my testimony of Gods grace and forgiveness of me a sinner…It’s definitely not about the “churchified” ME you see in the “after” picture.

    I hope you understand what I’m trying to say…
