Repeat After Me?

Repeat After Me?

Repeat after me? These are three little words which have great meaning in the scriptures. Who can repeat after us, and still be right with God? The prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord were are our example of faith, works, and long suffering. (Jam 5:10; Heb 11:32-38) Christ was our perfect example because he obeyed God even unto suffering, and death on the cross. (Jn 16:13; Philip 2:6-11; Pet 2:21) The apostles were our perfect example because they followed after Christ. (1 Cor 11:1; 2 Cor 2:17; 2 Tim 2:2) We are the perfect example to the world if we have obeyed the gospel of Christ, (1 Cor 15:1-4; Rom 10:17; Rom 10:10; Acts 2:38) and if we abide faithfully in the doctrine of Christ. (2 Jn 9; Rev 2:10) Let us be the shining example to the world that they may see our good works, and glorify our heavenly Father. (Mt 5:16) Those who repeat after Christ, and continue faithfully in the apostle’s doctrine are worth repeating. (Col 1:23-25; Acts 2:42; Philip 3:17-21;1 Thess 1:6; 1 Tim 4:12; 2 Pet 3:1,2; Jer 23:28)
