Total Commitment

Husband and WifeA Christian marriage mentor makes a total commitment to the couple being married. Husbands and wives should also encourage one another by spending time together, holding hands and talking in fact being a mentor to each other. To be a marriage mentor involves a total commitment and is the apex of the mentoring process.

Masterful Mentor

Silver Robot like ManIn the Gospels, Jesus is pictured as a masterful mentor who moved among and affected people almost without them knowing. Rather than cloning disciples like robots or trained dogs, he encouraged them to think for themselves. Without realizing it, they invariably embraced his moral and ethical code. Jesus gave us an example in his own life of what we should do, as well as what we should say! The Holy Spirit empowers Christians within the Household of Faith in order to do this. Saint Paul wrote in Ephesians 3.20-21, "Now to him, (the Holy Spirit) who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within us, to him be glory." The Holy Spirit's "force of God" not only works alongside us but energizes us within, encouraging us to encounter and experience Jesus and to become a better mentor to others in the faith.✞
