Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. (Heb 13:7)
This straightforward admonition near the end of Hebrews is packed with powerful insights.
- I have faith in someone or something.
- My faith will shape my way of life.
- My way of life will generate influence.
- My way of life will also come to define the pathway of my identity.
- The pathway of my identity will lead to an ultimate outcome.
And what is more pressing today than considering the outcome of your current way of life?
