Am I worth following?

We are into the second week of our Multiply discipleship ministry and the questions are challenging.

Our reading next week is Matthew 18-28, so in prepping for Sunday’s message I come across this passage:

So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. (Matt. 23:3)

Jesus was referring to the Pharisees. “Do what they say, but quit there. They don’t live out what they teach.”

Then, I think of Paul as he boldly says:

Therefore I urge you to imitate me. (1 Cor. 4:16)

First of all, the challenging question is this: Am I worth following? 

But then I need a bigger question in my own life answered: Who am I following that challenges me in my walk with Christ? 

Do I talk a good game and then pray no one is following? 

Or, am I willing to be a life laid on the line and allow people to see the good, the bad, and the ugly?

Am I seeking out mentors who will keep on challenging me in my walk of faith?
