Christ Is Our Example

For [as a believer] you have been called for this purpose, since Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you may follow in His footsteps.Ā He committed no sin, nor was deceit ever found in His mouth.Ā While being reviledĀ andĀ insulted, He did not revileĀ orĀ insult in return; while suffering, He made no threats [of vengeance], but kept entrustingĀ HimselfĀ to Him who judges fairly.Ā He personally carried our sins in His body on theĀ cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have beenĀ healed.Ā For you were continually wandering like [so many] sheep, but now you have come back to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.

1 Peter 2:21-25, Amplified Bible
