Christ suffered for you. He left you an example. He expects you to follow in his steps. You too were chosen…....
1 Peter 2:21(NIrV)
For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.
1 Peter 2:21 (NKJV)
Oh, how special we are. God himself called us. We were chosen by God. I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel special.
He left us an example to follow–his son, Jesus. Jesus instructed us many times to, "follow me." To follow him we first should get to know him. How can we get to know him? We can read about him. The Bible is full of the stories he told, the things he did and we can follow the things he showed us. Let’s learn about him.
These devotions will take us through the life of Christ. We will study his life through reading all about him in the Word of God—the Bible. You can make this your daily routine—to each day learn something new about Jesus. The more we learn about him, the more our love for him will grow. The more our love for him grows, we will then want to be more like him. Just remember, we are his chosen and special children.
Dear Lord, thank you for choosing us. We want to learn more about you. We pledge ourselves beginning today, to read about you every day. We pledge to find time to talk with you every day. Open your Word to us. Help us get to know you better. Every day we want to sit in your lap and listen closely to you. Whisper your words of encouragement to us. Help us get to know you better, Lord. Help us to be more like you.
