“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:” – Colossians 2:6 (KJV)
Making Jesus Christ your role model puts you on the pedestal of greatness. The children of God have everything in life to prosper therewith. The LORD Almighty has given Jesus Christ to the whole world (John 3:16).
For those in the kingdom of God, He has made Jesus their role model, but not everyone has taken Jesus as a role model (Hebrews 12:2). Some have made certain personalities in the world their role model.
Beloved, the danger is that if those personalities misconduct themselves, their followers turn to replicate their mistakes. However, if Jesus Christ is your role model, there is no way your life will be full of misconduct and mistakes. You will walk in Him and your life will move from glory to glory.
Dear beloved, meditate on the opening scripture and gain a heart of wisdom. The additional benefits of making Jesus Christ your role model are that you become rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith, and overflowing with thankfulness (Colossians 2:7).
Beloved, make Jesus Christ your role model and see your life move from glory to glory and from perfection to perfection. Praise the Lord! You are an overcomer!
Prayer Point: My loving Father, thank You for giving me a role model to look up to. I pray for Christians all over the world that even though they may have other people as their role models, they would make Jesus Christ their ultimate role model—so that they would not be deceived but be rooted, built up in Him, strengthened in faith, and overflowed with thankfulness in Jesus’ name. Amen!
