BE! So Others Can Become

John 5:19

So Jesus explained, "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.

Above is picture of a father and son, both joined the military and they even work together. I'm thinking that the son has always looked up to and admired his dad. Maybe from his youth, the son watched in admiration as his father supported their family and defended this country. Maybe the son watched or was aware of his father getting up early in the morning, cleaning his shoes, ironing his uniform, and preparing for work. I can just imagine this son watching his father help out strangers, return from war, and speak respectfully of and to others as well. NOW he has followed in his father's footsteps and they are doing a great work together!

Jesus did what He saw the Father do and obviously He saw the Father DO some pretty awesome things. Jesus then turned around and DID those same things. As we lead and disciple others, we MUST remember that they are watching us. Whatever we approve of they just might do the same. Whatever type of music, movies, clothing, lifestyle choices we make---they perhaps will eventually try to emulate us, as we gain more and more influence with them, because of the power and love of God in our lives. So, we have a great responsibility to copy Christ for us and for others. The world has seen enough worldliness and carnality in the church. It's time to show them the Father in all His holiness, glory, and love. It is truly time for us to be like our Father so others can become like Him too!

We love you and have a great weekend! (-:
