Pattern and power..
Whom do we follow?
Are we following Jesus footsteps?
How about feeling like giving up because no matter what we do, we can't do it perfectly or wholeheartedly?
Too much disturbances and temptations in life.
We see sufferings everywhere and wonder where God is? Problems never cease to come?
In addition, we ought to live by these words:
"I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who lives, but Christ live in me. Gal. 2:20
Seems impossible for us to do so. Isn't it?
We have to keep our selfie dead everyday and let Christ be alive in us.
But believe it or not...it is the best thing we could ever do in every aspect of our lives.
There is freedom in it and all the burdens be lifted up from our shoulders.
Yes, Christ is our pattern, but thank God, He is more. He is also our power.
- Oh to be like Thee, blessed Redeemer!
This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I will forfeit all of earth's treasures,
Jesus, Thy perfect likeness to wear. - Crisholm
