Description: A Bible Study for men, using The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas à Kempis, as an outline. Every week, we will discuss a short passage(s) from the Bible, as it relates to the reading from The Imitation of Christ.
The Imitation of Christ1 begins with these simple words,
Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness,” says the Lord. These are Christ’s own words by which He exhorts us to imitate His life and His ways, if we truly desire to be enlightened and free of all blindness of heart. Let it then be our main concern to meditate on the life of Jesus Christ. Christ’s teaching surpasses that of all the saints, and whoever has His spirit will find in His teaching hidden manna. But it happens that many are little affected, even after a frequent hearing of His Gospel. This is because they do not have the spirit of Christ. If you want to understand Christ’s words and relish them fully, you must strive to conform your entire life to His.
