Jesus, My Role Model
Many believers have unbelievers as their role models. Is this wrong? Of course it isn’t, well, is it of any benefit to you? Well i’ll leave you to decide that. Truth is because unbelievers do not have the bible to guide them it is quite challenging to gain values about unconditional love from them. They do not know and believe the gospel. Their actions are not always the best. More so, they do not have Jesus as their top priority.
Our key verse tells us that we must try to be like God. So, if we must have a role model let it be God. What are the attributes of God? God is Love (1 Corinthians 13). Do not be deceived dear friends, that scripture was not talking about erotic or romantic or platonic love. It spoke of only one being and that is God. God is perfect and the clearest expression of love. As Christians we should desire to express God’s kind of love.
In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul tells the Corinthians church that they should imitate him as he also imitates Christ. The bible also makes us understand that Christ is God (John 1:1). Hence, as Christians there should be one role model we all have, and that is Jesus Christ. In 1 Corinthians 15:45, the bible tells us that Christ is a life-giving spirit. Hallelujah! Christ is the life (John 14:6). Christ is top priority. Hallelujah!!!
Jesus I worship you. You are our greatest role model and example.
