Mastering Manhood: Imitation
Children imitate their parents. This is such a part of our lives that the Apostle Paul used this imagery to instruct the church:
Be imitators of God as dear children. Ephesians 5:1
Jesus Our Example
And imitation is our first principle for mastering manhood. Our children are master imitators. We are told to do the same. So what did the only perfect Father do with His Son?
The following verses are the basis for our opening discussion! Study them, because they hold the keys we need for Mastering Manhood.
