I am so quick to say that I want to be Christ-like. My mind immediately thinks of His love, kindness, and gentleness... all things I long to exemplify. But I am struck by everything else it means to be Christ-like; His suffering, sacrifice, forgiveness, and humility. This is why Jesus asked people to count the cost of following Him. "A servant is not greater than his Master." If Jesus laid down His life, we must be ready to do the same. He left us an example, and in 1 John 2:6 it says, "whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked."
What would it look like for you to walk like Jesus did? Are you willing to embrace this day with sacrifice and humility? Ask God to give you the heart and mind of Christ today as you live out your faith. Wouldn't it be amazing if someone were to say, "I spent the day with ____ (insert your name), and it was the closest thing I've ever felt to walking with Jesus."
