The rancher and I purchased tickets to listen to an Elvis impersonator a while back. Printed on the tickets assured us he was one of the greatest impersonators.
He spoke of the Elvis in the 1950s and sang like the Elvis of the 60s, as he danced like the Elvis of the 70s. It was as if Elvis himself was entertaining us. This man shared with the audience how he studied Elvis’ moves, his voice, and his attitudes so he could become like him.
After the show, the rancher and I shared the elevator with Elvis. As we chatted I was surprised at how much he sounded and acted like Elvis off stage. I couldn’t help but wonder how it would be to live your whole life trying to be someone else.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we are to live in obedience to Him, seeking to imitate and model our lives after Christ.
The Bible is our handbook, the how-to guide of Christ. We are to read it, practice it, and live it. Christ has left an example so that we might follow in His steps.
Until next time, Pam
