Why Should I Get a Mentor?
Being a Christian is not easy. Scripture constantly affirms this. We are called to take up our cross and follow Jesus daily (Luke 9:23). However, God has called those that are older to invest in those that are younger in order to teach them, equip them, and build them as they work to look more and more like Jesus. Paul tells the church in Corinth, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). Those that are older in our church, or any church for that matter, typically have been walking with Christ longer than those younger than themselves. Thus, they have gained greater wisdom through their mistakes, successes, and encounters with Jesus. Therefore, we believe they need to pour that wisdom into the younger generation in order to live a life honoring and pleasing to God.
