Frame of Reference
1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV) And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.
Much of the brokenness in our lives and in this world exists as a result of our negligence to model our ‘follow’-ship after the right frame of reference. We know that Jesus Christ is our example for living and relating in peace and love with one another. But without commitment to His teachings, things don’t work out well for us. Jesus committed Himself to us in completeness. From birth to death, to resurrection – He showed us what dedication to the Word of God will do for our lives. This is our frame of reference to follow. Make it your personal commitment, and let it be the foundation in your family life. Connect your personal and family life to a church body that shares Christ’s example with the world. What is the answer to our brokenness? “[We] have decided to follow Jesus…no turning back, no turning back!”
