Too New to Lead?

Verse:
 

"Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14

 
Lesson:
 

Do you ever find yourself doubting your ability to lead others to Christ, your Faith, or the"level" of Christianity you've attained just because you might be young, or even more accurately, a young Christian? This is normal, and I believe that all Christians do this, even our Pastors. In Philippians, Paul, notably one of the greatest church leaders of all time tells us that even he was still striving to obtain a greater level of understanding and Faith for the goal of Jesus Christ. What does this mean to you? This should be an inspiration that no matter where you are in your Faith, it is of relative unimportance as long as you are striving to grow in Christ and tell others about Him. All of us have a long way to go, and will only obtain perfection when we are with Jesus in heaven. Keep the faith and keep striving towards the goal!

 
Prayer:
 
"Dear Jesus - Thank you for showing me I can make a difference for you, whether I've been a Christian for a lifetime or a short time. Help me to see the goal and help me to show others the way to you." - Amen
