1 Corinthians 11:1 (AMPC): “PATTERN YOURSELVES after me [follow my example], as I imitate and follow Christ (the Messiah).”
The word “imitate” means to emulate what you see someone else doing. The more time we spend learning about the Lord in His Word, and through fellowship with the Holy Spirit, we grasp an understanding of His perfect character and beautiful nature. It’s His kind and generous heart that makes us fall in love with Him and want to walk in His ways. The Holy Spirit, Who lives inside us, makes the Person of Jesus more real to us; and empowers us to act just like Him. In John 14:21 Jesus said the person who embraces His Word and keeps it, is the one He will reveal and manifest Himself to. If we pursue knowing Him more this way, He will show Himself to us in a way that will overwhelm our hearts and influence our souls to desire to be just like Him. We will give heart and soul to capture His thoughts and emotions, and imitate Him in every way. This is what will draw people to Him…a life that is moulded after a Saviour Who loves all people, holding nothing back. This is what we want them to see - Jesus, not us.
