Mentoring: Mirroring God’s Grace

This week at Ladies First Tuesday at Ridgecrest Baptist Church, several of our ladies presented a Christian mentoring skit.  In the introduction, I proposed an observation about Christian mentoring or discipling:

Mentoring is mirroring the grace God’s given you to another believer.

As the writer of Hebrews instructs, we’re to” spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24).  The red scarf you see–is God’s grace which is passed to others. We must be intentional about mirroring this grace!

Grace may take different forms along the way. No one’s faith is cookie-cutter to another’s–our relationships to an infinitely creative God will always be individually tailored to each of His children.

As we take the red scarf, pass it along, then say goodbye to that person (but not forever, knowing we will meet up again in heaven someday!!), God puts that believer in the path of another to make a lasting difference in her life.  This next believer hears and sees the translated Grace of Christ and can’t help but be shaped by it in return.  She then passes Grace along. . . and Grace is  passed. . . and so on and so on. A never-ending blessing of generations. . .

Has God called you to Christian mentoring? If your church doesn’t do formal mentoring, would you consider praying for God to place another woman in your path, one to whom you can mirror God’s grace?

Or someone perhaps you yourself can learn from?

Lookin’ up,
