Follow me as I follow Him

Philippians 4:9 NLT – Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me – everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

I love this from the Apostle Paul to the church at Philippi. He was so confident in his teaching, his messages and his life, that he encouraged the church to follow his example. It was like he was saying follow me, as I follow Jesus. He must have known deep in his heart that he was truly following Jesus wholeheartedly that he could ask others to do what I do, and do what I say. He knew that living this way would bring the peace of God to their lives.


Dear Jesus, please help me to follow You wholeheartedly. I want my life, my words, my example to be a pathway that others can follow to find You. I want others to follow You, so they can experience You and the peace You give. Amen.
