“The Perfect Example”

Key Verse

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;” Ephesians 5:1

Text — Ephesians 5:1-5


Examples serve as guide and help to understand difficult things. Teachers would usually explain, using examples to help their pupils understand what they are teaching. In life, Jesus Christ is the perfect Example. His life is the perfect guide for everyone that wants to spend eternity in heaven, and be all that God created him or her to be on earth.
There are some examples in the Bible to learn from. The life of Dinah, Jacob’s daughter was a bad example of careless visitation. Samson’s loss of his eyes and untimely death showed that disobedience to parents and a life of overconfidence is dangerous. Likewise, the story of Judas Iscariot’s covetousness and betrayal is another bad example to avoid.
However, Samuel’s life of obedience, Joseph’s refusal to yield to temptations to commit sin with his master’s wife and Daniel’s decision to be different, refusing to join others to do evil are good examples God wants us to follow. What type of example does your life show? Choose to follow good examples, even if it brings temporary pain and be a good example for others to follow.
