Would Someone Like To Follow In Your Footsteps

A Good Leader

Lead By Example

 

Would Someone Like To Follow In Your Footsteps

 

     We that are born again Christians, we have a major influence that we project from the life that we live in front of others.  If we are professing to be Christians, but are still dibbling and dabbling with sin, then our influence is very detrimental to sinners.

 

     The bible tells us in Romans 14:7, “For none of us liveth to himself and no man dieth to himself.”  All believers lives are a testimony to the world, and what you do and say, and how you live, will either draw a sinner, or drive them deeper in sin.  A notice to all Christians, we are affecting someone’s life, whether it’s in our homes, at our jobs, in the grocery store, or even if we’re just walking down the street.  Our life is an open book.  We that are Christian’s, need to ask ourselves this question, from the life that I live, would someone want to follow in my footsteps?  Our life should say, I have a heaven to make it too, and a hell to avoid.  Which direction are we leading people in, is it the direction to heaven, or the direction to hell.  Christian’s will be held accountable on how they live in front of others, because whether we realize it or not, the life we live, can have an impact on a person’s decision on choosing between heaven or hell.

 

     The footsteps of a Christian must not waiver, or straddle from right to wrong.  We must be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the works of the Lord.  We should not condone sin, neither compromise with sin, but we must be a light that shines for men, women, boys, and girls.  The sinner needs to see our good works, but glorify our Father in heaven.  In order to draw the world to Christ, we can’t participate in things that the world do.  The bible says in James 1:8 “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”  Someone may want to follow in our footsteps, make sure that our footsteps are rooted and grounded upon the solid rock, which is upon our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, which will lead a person to heaven.

      Yes, we do have to watch what we do, this in itself helps us to be accountable to God:) Thankfully, our hearts rested in Him, is the best place for our hearts to be!

      You are so right, good hub, sinners are watching Christians and when they see a light it draws them to Christ in us. We need to be light everyday, show how we deal with stress, valleys, sickness, because if the lost see us dealing the way the world does, what conviction is there for them. We should strive to live righteous throughout the week and not just on Sunday morning, but to reach out in all aspects of our life to touch somebody else that is hurting or in a valley or lost! We were bought with a price and our life is no longer our own but a servant to all who Jesus wants to reach and show love. Amen Sister!
