O Come All Ye Faithful
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:16)
The Bible encourages us to be like Jesus. God’s ultimate goal for us is to conform us into the image of Jesus Christ. We are to love as He loves, obey as He obeys, and to live as He lives. A common approach to Christianity is for us to ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do?” In other words, when given a life situation, it is wise for us to ponder how might Jesus respond or what might He say in the same situation. We are to imagine knowing the character of Jesus what He would do. In pondering this, it helps us have the wisdom to respond the same way. As we read about Jesus at the age of twelve, let’s examine His example, and look for ways we may do as Jesus does. Therefore, the main idea of the message today is to follow the example of Jesus and faithfully be obedient to God’s call on our life.
