4 | Kindness
As followers of Jesus, we are called to live and love like Him. What exactly does it mean to model our lives after His? One characteristic that Jesus constantly demonstrated was God’s kindness. Regardless of how people treated Him, He was intentional about doing good to others. Showing kindness is a key element to reflecting Jesus’ character to the world around us.
3 | Compassion
Before Jesus left the earth, He set an expectation for His followers to live according to His example. When we represent Christ well, we give others the opportunity to experience His true nature and draw closer to Him. Compassion is one of the characteristics that attracts people to God. It is looking beyond our own needs to see the needs of others, learning to value them above ourselves. Let’s begin to engage the world with hearts of compassion and demonstrate the love of the Father to everyone we encounter.
2 | Attentiveness
We are living in a world where a lot of people feel lonely and unwanted, wondering if they even matter. But we have the opportunity to Be Like Jesus, to meet people where they are and let them know they are seen and valued. Jesus noticed the people who others missed, those who were often pushed aside. The enemy’s goal is to discourage and distract us from paying attention to what truly matters, but there are small things we can do to reflect the light of our Savior. You never know how one encounter can shift someone’s life. Find out how to grow in your attentiveness in part three of our current series.
1 | Holiness
When Jesus walked the earth, there was something about Him that attracted people out of darkness and into the light of God. He was known as a teacher, a healer, a friend, and many other roles. As His followers, we are called to live holy as He is holy, to be of the same heart and mind. In today’s world, what does it mean to walk in holiness like Jesus? Find out how in part one of our Be Like Jesus series.
