ONE TO ONE

By Jayme Hull −

Community is good.
Classes are helpful.
But one to one is great!

Have you heard about the Apple Store’s One to One program for their customers? I was amazed at the proficiency of this organized program. The entire time I was having my first teaching session with the instructor I couldn’t stop thinking,This is a perfect example of mentoring others in the body of Christ.”

Their promo on the website says:
One to One will help you do more than you ever thought possible with your new Mac.

Let’s just change the last two words in their statement for a Christian perspective. One to One will help you do more than you ever thought possible with your Lord Jesus Christ.

The Apple Company’s Personal Training Program is right on target as well. The slogan for this program has the following statement:
Personal Training at the Apple Store: Get up to a full hour of uninterrupted time to work one-on-one with a Trainer on the topic of your choice.

This is exactly what chapter two of Titus in the New Testament teaches to all believers. Mature, older Christian women are instructed to be encouragers and spend time mentoring younger woman.

Without realizing, we have allowed the Titus Mentoring concept to fall off the radar screen. As the days are becoming more and more evil, now is the time to make it a priority and be intentional with mentoring the next generation.

I am convinced mentoring changes lives, and when you begin to participate you will never be the same.

Do you have one hour every week or every other week to reach out and give another Christian woman your uninterrupted time? Would you be willing to share, and guide her into a closer and deeper walk with Christ? The more we give to others the more blessed we become.

We may not have the same amount of possessions or finances, but God gives us all the same amount of time in each day. How we spend our time is very important to God. Praise the Lord, for He gives us the freedom to choose how we will spend each minute of the day.

This week, will you consider giving one hour a week or biweekly to a younger Christian? Encourage and inspire her to live out and apply the Word of God to her life.

Pray for God’s guidance on how you manage your time.
Seek the Lord while He may be found.

“As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it. For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you. Indeed, the right time is now” (2 Cor. 6:1-2 NLT).

Be encouraged, you are incredible women of God and He has a plan and purpose for each one of you. When you allow God to have His way and use you to minister to others you will be blessed in your own relationship with God as you shine for Him.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8 NLT).
