He who claims to abide in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. (1 John 2:6, EMTV)
B1 He= anyone who says that they are a Christian.
B2 Claims. True or not true. See James 2:14, Proverbs 20:6, Titus 1:16. Compare Matthew 24:5, Revelation 2:2
B3 Abide in Him. This is to claim to be a Christian. The idea of abiding is a Biblical thought dealing with our dependence on Jesus Christ. 1 John 3:24, John 15:10, John 14:23
B4 Walk = living our daily lives. It is to be as the New Testament teaches us. To know these things, we must read and study the Bible. Matthew 11:29, Philippians 2:5, Ephesians 5:1-2, 1 Peter 1:15-16
B5 As He walked = the thoughts, desires, words, and deeds how Jesus lived. Obviously, we are not God, so we cannot do miracles as He did, but we can have the same attitude towards others, honor God, obey the Scriptures, and so on.
B1 Do you know anyone who claims to be a Christian but does not live godly?
B2 What is the importance of living godly?
B3 Are we to live like Jesus did with no home, no money, just go around and teach, preach, and heal?
B4 Are we to live like Jesus with the same priorities, desires, and interaction that He had with people?
B5 Are others watching us?
