Follow His Example

Posted on: 7-15-112012

One of my favorite movies is “Pay It Forward”. It’s about a young boy who decides that he is going to make a difference in the world. He befriends a homeless man and invites him to sleep in his garage. When his mon discovers the homeless man, he has repaired her car. He tells her he is just “paying it forward”.  Long before this movie, Jesus taught His disciples about “paying it forward”. Right after He washed His disciples feet in an act of servant hood, He told them that they should follow His example…they should go out into the world and be servants to those they encountered. The same is true for us today…if we are following the example set by Jesus, we need to take the role of a servant to those we encounter in our lives. We need to “pay forward” all of the love and grace God has lavished on us.

“I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” John 13:15
