“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”  (1Corinthians 11:1, NASB)

All of us are examples for others — like it or not.

As a disciple of Jesus, when people look to us what is it they see?

Writing to the disciples in Corinth, Paul recognized the fact that while it might be difficult for others to see Jesus directly; it was easier to see Jesus through Paul.  Our challenge each day is to follow Jesus faithfully in all that we say and do. 

The great 19th century preacher Dwight L. Moody said: “Out of 100 men. one will read the Bible; the other 99 will read the Christian.”

The world is watching you and me.  Who is it they see?  – Luther

    Our church sings the song ‘The Jesus in me loves the Jesus in you’ every Sunday as we pass the peace with other congregants and visitors. But I wonder if others can SEE the Jesus in us. I know sometimes — after looking real hard– I don’t recognize Jesus in my brothers and sisters. So now I wonder who do they see when they look at me.

    Sobering challenge. Will remember this week especially, with a heavy social schedule, including house guests and 17 for Easter dinner.
