[Manna - November 15]
He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked. 1 John 2:6
HE is to walk as our Lord walked, in His general deportment and relationship to everything that is good and correspondingly to avoid everything that is evil. He is to walk as nearly as possible in the footsteps of Jesus. This, however, does not mean that he either should or could, in an imperfect body, walk up to all the perfection of his Lord, who even in His flesh was perfect. It means just what it says, that we should walk as He walked--in the same way, in the same direction, toward the same mark and standard that He recognized and established. Z. '03-345 R3237:5
