Our Example

Leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps.
1 Peter 2:21

"Jesus is not only the teacher--His life is the text book which we are to study. Part of His mission to this world, was to show us in Himself--a pattern of a godly life...the teachings of Christ--they are not for knowing merely, as one learns the fine sayings of favorite literary writers; they are for living! They are to become lamps to our feet and lights to our path--and they are to be wrought into the web of our character. In the school of Christ, we are not to expect perfection--but we have a right to expect an increasing knowledge of spiritual things, and also spiritual growth in all the qualities which belong to Christian character.

The ideal Christian life--is a growing likeness to Christ. "
-J.R. Miller
