God has given each of us an arena in which He calls us to serve others. Jesus’ model of servant leadership is equally valid wherever we find ourselves: at home, at work, in church, in the community. Where has God placed you? Are children looking at you as their model of someone who wholeheartedly follows and emulates Jesus? Are employees or co-workers following your example? Perhaps other disciples are consciously or unconsciously modeling their discipleship after you. Do non-believers look at you as an example of a Jesus-follower? Let God shine through you today.
For the same God who worked through Peter as the apostle to the Jews also worked through me as the apostle to the Gentiles.—Galatians 2:8 NLT
Prayer: God, thank You for being the same here in my hometown as You are across the world, for faithfully working through all of us to show that there is a different way to live and lead. Work through me today in Jesus’ name, amen.
