What was your favorite food as a kid? What about now?
“What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”—1 Corinthians 3:5–9 (NIV)
Examine your life. Ask the Spirit to reveal areas and attitudes in you that you’ve not surrendered to Christ and in which you still resemble the world. Then, pray and ask for the Spirit to lead you into truth and submission in these areas so you may walk and live in the light of Jesus and effectively reflect that light to those who don’t know Him.
Take a step back from mentally idolizing other people and instead focus on the Spirit’s work in your own heart. Engage in a spiritual discipline that will draw your attention to Christ and grow your faith.
