Who are you looking at?

The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

Paul here outlines a fundamental principle to our ongoing enjoyment of God’s peace.

He encourages the Church to put into action what they have learned, received, heard and seen in him.
To do this we have to first let someone in.

My question to you today is who are you letting into your world to guide your growth and development in the Lord. Who are you looking at?  Who are you learning from? From whom are you receiving?  Who are you listening to?

Everyone of us needs to have someone in our lives that we look to as a discipler. Once we have identified this person we learn to observe, look into their world and notice what works, we see whats in them.

Its not just about what they do but how they do it.  When you interpret what they do into your own world you catch what is on their life. Something good is deposited in your life.

The choice therefore of who you choose to have lay their hands on your life is extremely important.

In Acts 2:42 the believers were devoted to the Apostle’s teaching. Who were the Apostles?  They were not random bloggers, internet preachers, visiting conference speakers (all of whom can be helpful), they were the men who were in the Church consistently, whose lives could be observed, fruit seen and therefore healthy lives to imitate.

Choose today such a person for your personal, spiritual and business growth.  That person sits right now in your Church as your Pastor, Connect Group leader, Youth pastor …

Committed to your growth.  See you in Church.
