1 John 2:6 (ESV)
In a world full of distractions and forces fighting for our attention we often lose sight of one thing: Jesus. Scripture tells us to keep our eyes on Christ, to put our faith in Christ, to pursue Christ, to love Christ, and ultimately to be like Christ. Unfortunately, we tend to forget that Jesus is our model for life and ministry. Christ not only came to free us from our sins but also to give us a model in which we are to follow. He was man as God intended man to be. Do we look towards Him for our model in all things? Do we take Christ’s example seriously and apply it to our own lives? Do we truly know what this even means? The Apostle John writes to early believers to assure them of their salvation and protect against sin. The object of both is Christ and how we relate to Him.
