> John 13:15 (AV)

15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

> 1 Peter 2:21 (AV)

21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

> 1 John 2:6 (AV)

6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

+ Photograph gives an exact image within the frame that you are looking at

+ "Walk a Little slower, Daddy." said a little child so small.

I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast, sometimes they're hard to see;

So walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up, You're what I want to be.

Then I will have a little child who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right, and know that I was true;

So, walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you!!

+ Johann Kaspar Lavater 1741 – 1801- (Clergymen Poet)

>He believed what was in the mind was carried out into the characteristics of the body

> This led him to seek influences of the spirit upon the features.

> Studied - Physiognomy (from the Gk. physis meaning 'nature' and gnomon meaning 'judge' or 'interpreter') is determining a person's character or personality from their outer appearance, especially the face.

> QUOTE - I would omit if Jesus Christ were standing visibly before me, or which I suppose He would not perform if He were in my situation. I will, with the assistance of God, accustom myself to do everything in the name of Jesus Christ; and, as His disciple, to sigh every hour to God for the blessing of the Holy Ghost, and be always disposed to prayer.”

+ Jn 13:21 - I Have Given You An Example

- Peter finally understood what Jesus was saying

1 Peter 2:21 (AV)

21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

- “Example” – Not to model

- A pattern or to die cast or mould

- Direct image to take in and become

> Matthew 11:29 (AV)

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

> John 12:26 (AV)

26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

> Philippians 2:5 (AV)

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

> 1 Peter 1:15 (AV)

15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

> Ephesians 5:2 (AV)

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

We admire sport heroes, entertainers, super heroes, motivational speakers – Who say:

- "Always do what you are afraid to do."

- We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

- Constant dripping hollows out a stone.

- is it Jesus?
