I believe that within the heart of every Christian is a strong yearning to live a life like Christ. Most of us are well aware of what Jesus did–the miracles that Jesus performed and all his great accomplishments–during his time here on earth, not many take the time to contemplate on what Jesus did not do. Doing things that Jesus did are just as important as not doing things Jesus didn’t do. So are you really living a life like Christ?
Yes, we are well aware that Jesus prayed ceaselessly, he loved being with the poor, he lived each day in obedience to his Father’s will. Do we actually pay attention to the things that Jesus never did though? The acts that he never committed?
