I urge you, then, be imitators of me (1 Corinthians 4:16).
“God has designed the Christian life so that much of one’s progress comes through imitating other Christians, imperfect though they be.” — ESVSB
Every Christian should seek to live a life worth emulating. What do your friends see in you that they can imitate? What do your children see? What would a new believer want to replicate?
Are you cheerful in trials? Humble? Do you have a heart to serve? Is your faith worth imitating? Do you consistently pursue the Lord?
I want to imitate Charles Spurgeon’s love of Jesus, John Newton’s joy, CJ Mahaney’s humility, David Powlison’s compassion. I want to imitate the way so many in our church serve, and the perseverance of so many of my friends in affliction.
Who do you seek to imitate and why?
