Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ. – 1 Cor 11:1

Find a good mentor! Imitate him or her, just as you imitate Christ. One of the best avenues for discipleship is to find a mentor who loves like Jesus, and ask him or her to show you how it’s done! Reading Scripture is infinitely important; but it’s not enough. You also need wise men and women to mentor you in practically applying Scripture to your everyday life.

There are people around you who have been through exactly what you’re going through right now. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel! Find a mentor who is willing to share his or her life experience with you. The benefits will be incredible!

How do you find the perfect mentor? Pray. Pray that God would lead you to the perfect mentor. Pray that God would open up their schedule so they have time to disciple you. If you ask God, He will make it happen!


Father, I pray You would put a good mentor in my life. Make him (her) passionate about mentoring me, and make me passionate about imitating them, just as they also imitate Christ!
