WHY BE LIKE JESUS?
A disciple’s whole goal is to walk with their teacher so that they can imitate them. As disciples of Jesus, we know that we can never become Jesus, but we can certainly imitate and train in the way of life that He taught and lived. A disciple is one who trains to be like Jesus.
Pursuing these practices will help you to be like Jesus and make Him the priority of your life. We recommend that you intentionally pursue these individually and with others in your daily life where God has placed you.
Jesus modeled a life of sacrifice. To live a life of sacrifice we, like Jesus, need to discover who we are, how we are gifted, and then use this identity and these gifts to love God and share Him with others.
SHARING THE GOOD NEWS
Jesus is the Gospel in the flesh. Because we know Him and spend time with Him, as disciples we should want to share Him with others. Disciples can’t help but tell people about the Good News of Jesus.
