Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice (Philippians 4:8).
I want this.
I want to be able to say to others, “Just follow my advice and my example, and you’ll be great.”
The first part wouldn’t be too bad–I can talk a good game.
But the second?
If people were to watch my life, and do what I do, what would the state of the Church be?
That’s an uncomfortable thought.
So, I am thankful for Paul, and even more thankful for grace.
Happy Monday, Beloved.
