Scripture: Titus 2:7-8
“Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1 (KJV)
Share evidence of God's glory you can see in your life.
Worldly leadership usually involves “doing what is said rather than what is done”. The same people who create laws for others to follow are the ones who break them without any regard for the law. This is why there are reports of embezzlement, corruption and scandals involving people highly placed in society. However, this is not the standard of God. God expects every leader to lead by example.
Paul was confident to tell his followers to follow his example because he was following Jesus’ example. He did not hesitate to encourage Titus to also be an example of good works so that others can emulate him. When leaders, especially older and experienced ones, set a pattern of good works and reports, they set a standard that young and upcoming leaders can have as a reference point for continuity.
You qualify to handle other people’s disobedience when your obedience is complete (2 Cor. 10:6). Even Jesus had to prove his obedience and be made perfect before he qualified to be our Saviour (Heb. 5:8-9). By his life on earth, we all have an example to follow. His disciples learnt not just by what he said but by what he did. What example are you setting for others to emulate? Is your life a pattern for others in church, at home, in your marriage and in business? Make a decision today to follow the example of Jesus that you may set a pattern for others to emulate.
What am I doing that indicate that am following Christ daily?
Lord, let my life be an example for others to follow in Jesus name, Amen
I set a pattern of good works, sincerity and sound speech for others to emulate.
