One important tenant of the Christian faith is that we become Christ-like meaning Believers strive to live lives that follow the example of Jesus and the instructions given to us in the Bible. Paul, the writer of this passage, was one of the most influential leaders of the early church and he urged others to be imitators of Christ. He knew that Christ’s life and teachings were worthy of following after. Are you striving to follow the example of Christ?
And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.
~ 1 Corinthians 11:1 [NLT]
