How We Imitate Jesus

We have the mind of Christ. How do we get it and what do we get from it?

1Cor. 6:14 Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power.

Rom. 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

1Th. 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
1Th. 4:15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
1Th. 4:16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

2Cor. 4:14 knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and will present us with you.

2Tim. 2:11 It is a trustworthy statement:
For if we died with Him, we will also live with Him;

Rom. 6:5 For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection,
