Topic: *IMITATE CHRIST*
1 Corinthians 11:1 King James Version (KJV)
11 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
Beloved, the great Apostle Paul sought to bridge a gap here by making the people know that he represents Christ and imitates Christ in all His ways so if they have doubts about what Christ did, how He lived or because they can't physically see Him they don't know how to emulate Him, then, they should watch him, Paul, and imitate him because He is imitating Christ in all he does.
Beloved, like people have role models and mentors we Christians also need such. Sometimes the lives of certain people around you influence you and give you hope for the future. Especially in difficult times; when all hope seems to be lost.
Beloved, it's not all Christians who have that deep personal relationship with Jesus. So it's not all of us who have a word from Him through revelation or a dream or a vision to hold on to, and keep keeping on. Some people need that mentor, they need that model to walk in their footsteps to make it.
Beloved as Christian as you are, whether a Man of God or whatever position you occupy, can you ask your congregation or followers or friends or family to imitate you as you imitate Christ?.
Who do you imitate my beloved brethren? These questions are questions you should ask yourself and find answers to. This will help you to know where you are heading to and what that direction holds for you.
Beloved Christ lived a perfect life. The Apostles imitated Him and many other followers imitated the Apostles. Today we should also imitate Christ, if we feel the gap is too wide let's imitate the Apostles if the gap is still too wide, look at the life of the Men of God you have in your life, choose one and imitate him as he imitates Christ. *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else.
Prayer: Daddy please help me live a Christlike life in the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
_EXHIBIT YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS AND THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SHALL SURELY REWARD YOU_
