An Invitation to a Journey

Over and over in Scripture, we are called to imitate Christ, whether it Paul’s exhortation in 1 Corinthians (11:1) or Christ’s own call to love as he loved us (John 13:34) or serve others as he came to serve us (Matthew 25:25-28).  But how do we grow to “become a little more like Jesus each day”?  What does it look like to imitate Christ in an age 2,000 years removed from the world in which Jesus walked, taught, and served?  And maybe as importantly, why is imitating Christ important? Because he told us to? Or is there something deeper that could benefit our lives, while also improving the way our lives impact the lives of others?

In this series, we will look at a passage in Paul’s letter to the Colossians (3:1-17) that describes several ways in which we are to “set our hearts on things above” and in the process learn how to imitate the example and life of our Lord and Savior.  Each week we’ll take an in-depth look at a specific character trait of Christ (such as his humility) – supplementing the text from Colossians with specific examples from the gospels.
