Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Who is someone in your life that because of you is really changing the world? A son? A daughter? A friend? Paul has Timothy.

I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you. I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare. For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel.
                                                  -Philippians 2:19-22 TNIV

A key aspect of discipleship is pouring all of Christ in us into another person that they might follow our example. This is exactly what Timothy did; Paul poured himself into Timothy, and Timothy did likewise with still others.

Prompts two thoughts: Is there enough of Christ in me that I may pour it into another? Secondly, God surely is calling us to pour ourselves into another, but who? And why not start today doing so?
