The Place for Christian Example

We talk about the Word of God here on this blog.

But there’s also the importance of being an example.

Hebrews 12:1-3 reminded me today:

Therefore, since we also have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let’s rid ourselves of every obstacle and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let’s run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking only at Jesus, the originator and perfecter of the faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

There’s the importance of the examples of Jesus, but there’s also the importance of others.  And hopefully, that includes us being an example.

Which is convicting.

It is something worth praying about.

It is worth it for us to see Christ and see his example, but also trust in Him. Then we follow His example by His grace.

  1. Paul himself said to “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1). Many people state that Paul said to follow him, when in reality the meaning isn’t to follow as a disciple, but to follow his example, yet only as he imitates Christ Jesus. Brother Jim has a perfectly good point that many forget and need reminding of time and again. Otherwise, why would Jesus NEED disciples today? We need to be the light that let’s people see Christ, not just in us, but THROUGH us!! 👍💗🕊📖😇
