Who is watching you and what do they see?

Grace Notes – A product of our environment

Although we like to think that we are unique and freely make our decisions, the fact is, others make most of them for us. The car we drive, the clothes we wear, our hairstyle, the grocery brands we prefer, where we dine, the list could go on forever, but all of our choices come by the way other people that we value and emulate. Everything you do is a direct reflection of the one you choose to follow, to imitate. We can put ourselves in a precarious situation if we decide to pursue a particular person, product or principle. As Sir Richard, the last of the Grail Knights in Indiana Jones cautiously explained to Dr. Jones, “Choose wisely.” Good advice!

If someone were to imitate you, could they also say they were imitating Christ? What would it look like for someone to emulate you? A wise man told me the most excellent sermon you could ever preach would be the life that you lead, the example you set for others. 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 is worth reading.

Join us Sunday at Zion and bring a guest as an example for others to follow. May the Holy Spirit guide your every step!

Peace, Pastor Mike
