We say Jesus is the reason for the season.
It dawned on me recently that another reason for the season is Mark Roth.
Had it not been for my sin and need of redemption, Jesus need not have come.
But He needed to come and so He came.
Not only did He come to redeem us, He also came to be our example:
“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps” (1 Peter 2:21).
Having accepted His life, will I follow His steps?
