We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:
At the beginning of Jesus' earthly ministry, he called (Kaleo) people to follow him who were ordinary and not the "best of the best". He wasn't concerned with how smart they were or how much scripture they had memorized - he was seeking those who would imitate him. In what ways did the disciples imitate Jesus? How can we imitate Jesus?
Something we continually see Jesus do during his ministry is seeking justice for those who were oppressed and hurting in this world. He turned society upside down by seeking out those that were outcasts and pariahs (think lepers, tax collectors, handicapped, etc). He laid out a blueprint of what he would do when he read a prophecy from Isaiah (read Luke 4:14-30). How do you see Jesus fulfilling what is written?
The bible states over and over that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves and look to the needs of others over our own selfish desires (Philippians 2:2-4, Proverbs 31:8-9, and James 2:15). What does this look like in your life? What can it look like the more you imitate Christ?
Additional Scripture to explore: Proverbs 31:8-9, Isaiah 58:6-7, Micah 6:8, Philippians 2:3-4, Mark 1:16-20
