March 26, 2019: SOAP #3400:   Joshua 23-24; Psalm 44; 1Corinthians 11

Scripture:  1Corinthians (NIV) 11:1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. 2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, just as I passed them on to you.

Observation:  Paul was a leader, but before he was aleader, he was a follower.  He couldnever be a better leader than a follower.  A good leader is a good followerof an even better leader.  The bestleaders are great followers of Jesus, the greatest leader!     

Application:  Today's SOAP is not to present a thought that Ican apply to my life, but a question about which I can meditate throughouttoday.  What is the example ofChrist?  What did Paul see in Christ thathe wanted to pass along to others?  Whatdo I see in Christ that I want to pass along to others? 

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, among the many possibilities, todayshow me something specific in Christ that will improve my service toothers.  Then help me set a good examplefor others to follow.  Amen
