EXPLORING GOD’S WORD 51b


TOPIC: Following the example of Christ

*We are to follow His example in  meekness.  Matthew 11:29 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.

*in obedience —– John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

*in self-denial—- Matt.11:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. ( Romans 15:3 )For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.”

*in ministering to others —- Matthew 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His [a]life a ransom for many.”  ( John 13: 14-15 ) 14 If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you.
