“In a world filled with easy access to news we can easily read stories of people with heroic faith, and watch the latest fashion trends of what looks great and popular. We can easily covet others material belongings and desire to imitate their looks including their behaviours. The Bible warns us of coveting and imitating bad things not healthy for us. The Word of God reminds us that the perfect MODEL for us to imitate is in the person of Jesus Christ. He is the only person born sin-less, led a perfect life, teaching and showing others how to treat people with love and respect. Jesus spoke with wisdom, Truth, confidence, and authority in the Word of God, and He showed us how to live a balanced life of being available to help and love all. Yet He had His smaller group of disciples, and inner circle of closer friends, Peter, James and John. Most importantly, Christ taught us that it was essential to take time out to spend quality time alone with our Heavenly Father.
Jesus Christ is not only our Lord, and God. Jesus on earth as human was and is the best Role MODEL for us to imitate. Jesus was compassionate, loving, forgiving, and made time for those who were viewed as outcasts in His time. What do you think the outcasts of this generation will seem to look like for us? How should we respond to others as Christ taught us?
Rather than imitating celebrities as idols in our lives, let’s imitate and model Jesus Christ as our ultimate Role Model.” ”Lord Jesus, forgive me when I turn to other people, celebrities and public figures as my idols. I desire only to follow and imitate You as my perfect Role MODEL to imitate because You are the best standard of love and holiness. Everything You do is always self-less and full of humility. I aspire to be more like You daily. Help me through the Holy Spirit.”
