Morning Prayer, Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - BE AN EXAMPLE OF CHRIST

Father God, instead of me trying to drag others into the kingdom, give me the patience to pray for them to get there and help me to be an example that could possibly draw them in.   Amen

Matthew 5:16 and I Timothy 4:12

"You have to find the peace and patience within yourself to be a model and an example to others and not judge." Not everyone will come to the realization quickly that God is the way, the truth and the life.  Many of us can remember how we were out there living it up in the world doing things our way.  God was patient with us.  He didn't push us out of our chosen lifestyle.  He didn't judge us and want to stone us for not choosing Christ.  Sometimes, if you will live the life of Christ before that person, sooner or later, they will have that ah ha moment just like we did when we realized that life would be so much sweeter if we were followers of Christ instead of followers of men.  Whether it is your child, your spouse, a friend, a co-worker, your neighbor or your relative, not everyone will get there at the same time.  We sowed our oats in whatever way that was pleasing to us and didn't turn away from it just because someone told us it was wrong.  God knows every man's heart.  He knows when that friend or family member will make the switch. If he is willing to wait on them why can't we?  When we try to force someone into Christ, we can sometimes push them farther away.  If I invite them to church they may not come the first time but what if I keep inviting them from time to time. Sooner or later, they will either be like that unjust judge in Luke 18:1-8 and go just to shut you up, or they will go because they feel that pull.  Until they get there, be the example of Christ to show them the peace, love and joy of Christ.
