Our Example

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

1 Peter 2:21. For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.

This verse can’t help but draw all of us up short. Jesus set the pattern for walking on this earth. He did it expecting us to follow His example. In order to follow His example we must read, study and meditate in the written accounts of His walk. He was never too busy to stop and help someone in need. He was open to all who sought Him. He showed compassion, not judgement. He encouraged rather than condemned. He was responsive to interruptions. We are highly scheduled people today. We are overly busy running to and fro. We are impatient when our scheduled plans are interrupted. Time for us to reflect on our priorities. Let us learn to follow His footsteps and serve those who cross our paths rather than be served.
