"If we would be like our Master"

The product of Gospel-living is Christ-likeness.  Yet, let us not emphasize one of Jesus' attributes over another.  Let us, instead, be like Him in fullness.

Here's one of those Grace Gem emails (from 10/7/08):
(J. R. Miller, "Living Without Worry")

"Whoever claims to live in Him--must walk as Jesus did." 1 John 2:6

Every true Christian should desire to be Christlike in character. It is not enough to be honest, and upright, and true, and just. Christ had these strong qualities--but He was also gentle, and kind, and loving, and patient. If we would be like our Master--we must have these traits of character also in us. When we pray that the beauty of the Lord may be upon us, we must
ask for these finer features of His beauty--as well as for the more rugged ones. We need His strength and truth and faithfulness and justice--but we need His love and tenderness as well. "Leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps." 1 Peter 2:21
