As servants of the Lord and followers of Jesus, we are instructed to be a good example to our neighbors, even as Jesus was our example. (See John 13:15; 1 Peter 2:21)
Here are some pertinent Scripture passages:
Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. (Phil 3:17 ESV)
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Tim 4:12 NIV)
. . . in all things showing yourself to be a pattern [model] of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility . . . (Tit 2:7 NKJV)
We are challenged by the Word of God to live in unity and harmony with the teachings of Jesus Christ. We do that by studying and memorizing the Word of God, and by pursuing spiritual maturity in our walk with Christ. We also fulfill this mandate by living peaceful and responsible lives.
We’re instructed to perform good deeds, and to be an example in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity. Our lives will display integrity, reverence for God and for spiritual things, as well as an incorruptible spirit. As we live in this way, we will be following Christ’s example, as well as being a good example, too. God bless you.
