Remember your leaders and superiors in authority [for it was they] who brought to you the Word of God. Observe attentively and consider their manner of living (the outcome of their well-spent lives) and imitate their faith (their conviction that God exists and is the Creator and Ruler of all things, the Provider and Bestower of eternal salvation through Christ, and their leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness). (Hebrews 13:7 AMP)
There are some leaders who have kept their love,their study of God’s word. You can imitate them. What matters is that they believe that God created us and that He’s in charge. They also believe that God meets our needs and wrapped up in Christ as a gift is our salvation. This next one is the one i love. I pray i’ll shine this if nothing else. Whether things are great or life is tough we walk leaning with all we are into His shoulder knowing He can be completely trusted because He’s powerful, wise and good-hearted.
I am none of these but I’m aiming at one because I’m needy. I want to remain always leaning into Jesus, believing in His goodness. A person who can be imitated is rare. But they exist. That’s why we pray for each other. There’s a lady whose grace, sense of humor, holiness and marriage I want to imitate. Jesus, stay near as I lean into you.
