I thought I'd resurrect this old post and see if anyone responds.

What person in the bible inspires and challenges you the most?

The Apostle John

What's their story?

He demonstrated a deep love for and dedication to Jesus that is manifested in an intimate relationship. It is John whom God chose to preserve and then reveal the Book of Revelation through. This does not minimize the other apostles, but is to me something special. 

What is it about them that is inspiring?

John did not forsake his responsibility to be a light to the world in which Jesus shines through, yet being a light was an outflow, in my opinion, of the deep relationship he experienced with Jesus.

How would you like to be more like them?

I believe that it is important to learn a lesson from John ... before you can do for Jesus you must spend time with Jesus. Thus, I believe the more we draw into Him the more Holy Spirit is released in and through us for God's glory.

What are your first steps to become like them? (if you'd like to share)

Slow down and learn to sit at his feet once again for prolonged periods of time.

What person in the bible inspires and challenges you the most?

Joseph.

What's their story?

I love Joseph because against all odds he never gave up. He was the favorite child of Jacob, and he knew it! God had given him dreams and visions which caused tons of problems for him with his brothers. These problems would ultimately lead to his brothers putting him in a cistern (well), until  his brothers sold him into slavery to a caravan of Midianites who came along. He became homeless in the fact that he was taken away from his family and his home. He rose to power because the Lord gave him favor among men beginning with Potipher, to the guards in during his time in the prison, then, to Pharaoh.

What is it about them that is inspiring?

Joseph was only 17 when he was sold into slavery by his own brothers. I'm sure he had to wonder what he had done wrong, as he knew he was given dreams by the Lord. I'm sure he asked himself and the Lord what he had done to deserve everything he was going through. The thing is, the Bible does not one time mention anything about Joseph questioning himself but, most importantly, God. Instead of questioning, he was obedient and did everything to please God first and men second. 

How would you like to be more like them?

I would like to be more obedient and please God first in my life.

God bless you, Carla.
