For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: (1 Peter 2:21).
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was tempted like as we are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15). He was sinless, yet He suffered and died in our place (Romans 6:10).
Christ is our example, a pattern for us to duplicate in our lives. Reflect on the attributes of the Son of God while on earth that we should endeavor to possess. Love, compassion, tenderness, kindness, obedience, sacrifice, humility, genuine love (and many others).
God’s people have been called by the gospel (1 Thessalonians 2:14), out of the world of darkness (Colossians 1:13-14), to have the mind (Philippians 2:5) of their Saviour. How are you doing following the example of Christ?
