1 1Pe 2:21-23
21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: [KJV]

Some years ago, I was to write the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination. A few months to the test, I discovered I needed extra lessons for Mathematics. I got a dedicated teacher who helped me prepare and ultimately pass the subject with a good grade. Looking back, I remember this; each day he would pick a topic in the syllabus and solve several examples. After that, he would take past questions dating several years back and solve the questions on that topic. Then he would give me assignments.

In the main text, Christ was said to leave us an example. Of course, Christ suffered to save us. He is our Saviour and Lord. He is also our Example. He suffered also to leave us an example that we can choose to suffer rather than sin. That was what Moses did. Scripture said he saw 'Him who is invisible' and chose to suffer rather than sin. Read Heb 11:24-27.

Jesus told some Pharisees in Jn 8:38 'I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father'.

You are either following Christ's template or the devil. Take note.

Go into today asking the Holy Spirit to teach you and empower you to follow Christ’s example.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, please show me what to do in every situation. Let my life be Your example to unbelievers around. Amen.
