Oh, to be more like Christ!

It is said that, thinking to amuse him, his wife read to Dr. Judson some newspaper notices, in which he was compared to one or other of the apostles. 


Her husband was exceedingly distressed: and then he added:
"Nor do I want to be like them. I do not want to be like Paul, nor Apollos, nor Cephas, nor any mere man. I want to be like Christ. We have only one perfectly safe Exemplar, -  only One, who, tempted like as we are in every point, is still without sin. I want to follow Him only, copy His teachings, drink in His Spirit, place my feet in His footprints, and measure their shortcomings by these, and these only. Oh, to be more like Christ!"

➤ Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 2:5-11)

  1. Amen...why look to an ordinary person when we can look to God instead?

  2. Jesus humbled Himself.I pray that I can be His humble servant.

  3. Adoniram Judson was one of the first missionaries I read about after I met the Lord. He had such an amazing faith and I believe, Ariella, it is for the very reason that he states in what you've shared today. Thank you so much for sharing that with us here today. xx
