Why Should I Be Like Jesus?

  • Question 01
    In what ways do you find yourself imitating or being influenced by your family, culture or heroes?
  • Question 02
    What would our world look like today if more people imitated Jesus?
  • Question 03

    2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. -Hebrews 12: 2 (ESV)

    What does it mean to “look to Jesus” as mentioned in Hebrews 12:2?
  • Question 04

    3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. –Philippians 2:3-8 (ESV)

    What are some of the qualities Paul encourages us to imitate from the life of Jesus in Philippians 2:3-8?
  • Question 05
    How might we implement these qualities in our lives today?
  • Question 06
    How should knowing that the Creator of the universe found it necessary to serve others, impact the way we view service?
  • Question 07

    8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. -Philippians 2: 8 (ESV)

    According to Philippians 2:8, to what extent did Jesus take the role of a servant? How does this impact you?
  • Question 08
    Why do you think we should be like Jesus?
  • Exercise 01
    Read John 13:1-20. The practice of washing feet was meant to be done by the household’s servant, host or the lowliest person present; and Jesus, the Son of God, went against this traditional norm. What point was Jesus trying to make with this act of service? How should this impact the way we live?
  • Exercise 02
    Jesus was the perfect example for following the greatest commandment, to love God and to love others. How does Jesus’ example of service and sacrifice redefine what it means to love? How does this compare to the way the world defines love?
