IT IS TOUGH BEING LIKE JESUS BECAUSE OF COMMITMENT , DEDICATION , DEVOTION AND TOTAL OBEDIENCE .
I REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST GOTTEN SAVED AND MAN WAS IT GREAT TO BEING A PART OF THE CHURCH. it says in 2 Timothy 2:25
with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth,
Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.
in other words . We need to have a strong dedication and perfect obedience to what we're doing . that is how Doctors of the Bible need
also we need to learn how to be like Jesus . because if we're not focus on God's word and we're putting ourselves first before God . we cannot be disciples .
it says in Luke 14: 25 - 33
Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’
“Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.
in other words instead of putting ourselves first before God . we need to put Jesus Christ first before anyone else. meaning that we need to do what Jesus tells us to do
