Today we are going to talk about, The Best Role Model Ever.
Philippians 3:12 (ESV) talks about Straining Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
We as Christians have the perfect role model.
Christ is our example when it comes to how we treat people.
Christ is our example on the influence we can and should have on those around us.
Christ is the ultimate and eternal role model we are called to be.
No one even comes close.
As we read the scriptures it is revealed that Jesus was always finding people right where they were at, and taking them where they needed to be.
He was always seeking people who thought they were nobody and made them into somebody.
In todays verse, Paul makes it clear that the goal we pursue, here on earth and later in heaven, is Jesus Himself.
He is the example we are to follow, the person we are meant to be like.
We won’t reach perfection until the time when we see Him face to face, but we are called to always be moving towards Him.
In His strength we press on towards the goal, one day at a time.
Only He can make us who we need to be if we focus on Him and allow Him to work through us.
The same Jesus who went around making somebodies out of nobodies is still at work right now in our lives.
Gos has a purpose in shaping us to be like Jesus.
We become His influence, His hands and heart, for and to everyone around us.
Wherever we find ourselves, we can influence people for His glory.
That begins at home in our families, but extends into every area of life, our friends, coworkers, neighbours, other church members, everyone we come into contact with.
God doesn’t just glorify Himself by sending Jesus into the world.
If we let him, He glorifies Himself by sending Jesus into the world through us.
Remember that you are a personal representative of Jesus.
Stay in the Blessings
