“You shall walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may go well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you shall possess.” (Deut 5:33)
“But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)
If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another. We Christians are meant to walk together in faith, faith in Jesus and in one another, trusting Jesus and trusting each other.
We are meant to walk together, not alone, accompany each other as we need each other in our journey of faith. We are meant to work together and support each other.
For us leaders, part of this walking and working together with our members, is to mentor them. Mentoring by not of what we say but more of what we do, like faithfulness to our covenant, culture, mission, and obedience to God and leaders.
Let’s “walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Cor5:70)
Do you walk by faith, not by sight? Do you always ask Jesus for signs or results before you do something, or do you simply trust him?
Do you walk with your spouse and children in your journey of faith? How about with brothers and sisters in the community? Are you faithful in attending your weekly Household meetings to be with the other members of your Household and journey with them together?
Are you faithful to our covenant, culture and mission? Do you practice obedience to God and your leaders?
Do you continue to seek to grow in your faith or do you think there is nothing more for you to learn and do, hence you no longer:
- go to Mass regularly,
- pray daily, and read and reflect on the Word of God,
- attend your weekly Household meetings regularly,
- attend the teachings and training programs of our community, and
- accept leadership role?
If you are a leader, do you accompany your members by mentoring them? Do you show good examples in your life and service to God and encourage your members to serve also?
Do you show good examples by being faithful to our covenant, culture and mission and obedience to God and your leaders?
Are you a blessing or a burden to your members?
