Lead By Doing
If we are going to lead other people to be more and more in love with him, more and more enjoying him, more and more eager to closely follow him, then we have to be falling more and more in love with him.True words indeed. And yet so many churches practice a kind of "like" with Christ, as if He is a good Facebook friend, but I wouldn't want to, you know, actually hang out.
Is it possible we love "success" more than Christ? Is it possible we are more in love with full pews and plates than we are with our Lord?
And yet, thinking that way makes me think that we perceive Christ as unattractive - and that just does not make sense to me. IS it possible we are just really bad mirrors?
