What does it mean to be like Christ?
Following. It's the essence of being like Christ. A new believer learns how to follow Christ by being part of a church of Christ's followers, just like a child learns to talk by listening to his parents or a med school student learns surgery by watching an experienced surgeon. Each of us, no matter how new or established in the faith, is responsible for following Christ and modeling Him to others.
But what are the central precepts a person should know to fully follow Christ? Tony Evans presents what he terms “four absolute necessities” to following the Lord. Readers will be led into a more intense, passionate walk with Christ as they come to understand what's required.
