Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ” (1 Cor. 11:1)
Dearly beloved ICANJ family,
It’s a truth that we all influence others as we live out our lives, whether good or bad. We either build up or tear apart people by our speech and conduct. We either encourage people to follow Christ or obstruct them from it, by our lifestyle. We either draw people closer to the Lord or alienate them from Him by our life and examples.
Apostle Paul could publicly challenge the believers in Corinth saying, “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ” (1 Cor. 11:1).
In fact, we all will all be compelled to face our influence one day. Jesus said, “I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings” (Lk. 16:9).
