Topic: Who Is Your Role Model? [Sunday 15, October 2017]

Memorise: “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” - 1 Corinthians 11:1

Read: Philippians 3:14-19

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Bible In One Year: Mark 4-5. Hymn: Sing Hymn 3 - Deeper, Deeper in the Love


Who is your role model? Show me your role model and I can tell you who you are. In the Bible reading for today, we read about someone who was bold enough to tell his audience to follow him because he was a follower of the Great Master Jesus. He aspired to become like Jesus Christ to the point of no return.

Beloved, who is your role model? We have living role models in the present age; those that are sold to the righteousness attainable only in Christ, those who have not corrupted themselves with the affairs this life. Therefore, beloved, watch out for good role models and pattern your life after them as they do after Christ, don't pattern your life after secular musicians or actors that live careless lives, they may seem like the interesting bunch now, but if you look closely at their lives, you realize that they are constantly chasing something or running from something. Secretly, they envy us Christians and wish they could live the lives that we live, but they are not bold enough to make the change, that is why you see them come to Church once in a while. The Holy Spirit in your life is your greatest possession, don't lose Him by copying the wrong people.

Action Point: Look among Christian leaders and find out those living according to Christ's doctrines. Follow their footsteps.
