For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you.
This, in brief, is what it means to be a Christian. It is to follow the example that my Lord set for me. As He walked; as He lived; as He did and thought and said, so, too, should I.
While I know that I am far short of my Lord, I trust that He is able to make me like Him. He is able to make me a servant and to enable me to love others as He loves and to follow His example. And His example also tells me where to begin. Love God. Love my fellow believers. Move outward from there.
Let me look intently at my Example, so I might know when I draw near to Him.
