This Perfect Pattern

Oh that this blessed Scripture might always lie warm upon our hearts. A Christian's whole life should be nothing but a visible representation of Christ. It is not only our liberty but our duty and glory, to follow Christ inviolably in all His moral virtues.

Other patterns are imperfect and defective, but Christ is a perfect pattern!  Of all His children, they are the happiest, who come nearest to this perfect pattern.

[Thomas Brooks]

1 John 2:6 ... He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

1 Peter 2:21 ... For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

Proverbs 4:18 ... But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
