"He who says he abides in Him, ought himself also
to walk even as He walked." 1 John 2:6
Christians are to set all Christ's moral actions before them
as a pattern for their imitation. In Christ's life, a Christian
may behold the picture or lineaments of all virtues--and
accordingly he ought to order his life in this world.
To walk as Christ walked is to walk . . .
To walk as Christ walked is to . . .
slight the world,
despise the world,
make a footstool of the world,
to live above the world, and
to triumph over the world as Christ did.
To walk as Christ walked is . . .
to love those who hate us,
to pray for those who persecute us,
to bless those who curse us, and
to do good to those who do evil to us.
To walk as Christ walked is to be patient, and silent,
and submissive, and thankful, under the vilest reproaches,
the heaviest afflictions, and the greatest sufferings.
"Leaving you an example, that you should follow
in His steps." 1 Peter 2:21
From Grace Gems
Those that know Him should follow His lead, there should be some sort of fruit in their lives. The corrupt nature, called the old man has been done away with and we are a new man, with Christ living in us. If Jesus lives in you and me we have all the power we need to be conformed into His image. Let us take up our cross and make a difference in this world, in the nieghbors around us, the folks we work with....with our families that are lost.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.
2 Timothy 1:8 8 So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.
