Who We Are
Where We Meet
The Example That We Should Follow and Be
---The Bible tells us that the reason that we are called is because of an example that was left for us.
-Do you know what example I am making reference to?
-Do you know what a great example was left?
-Do you realize what we are to do with this example?
---If you answered NO to any of these three questions, I trust after our discussion tonight, you will be able to say YES to every one of them.
---The Bible affirms our need for being examples, but there is a pattern that we should learn to follow?
II. Do you know what example I am making reference to? (I Peter 2:21)
---Jesus the Son of God came in the flesh and suffered for you, left you an example, and wants you to walk in His steps.
---So now you can answer YES to question #1 because you know exactly who we are making reference to.
---Now that wasn’t so bad, was it ...
III. Do you know what a great example was left? (I Peter 2:22-24)
---Christ left us an excellent example and showed to mankind the greatest love that he has ever known.
---At this point I know you can answer question #2 because you can see the example set by Christ
IV. Do you realize what we are to do with this example?
---Christ continues that statement in John 15 by saying,:
---Have you kept the commands of the Lord? Are you a friend to Jesus today?
---We must always seek to follow Christ and be an example everyday.
---Keep in mind that we are supposed to follow Christ’s’ steps, and this signifies doing exactly as He did when He was here on the earth.
