Matt, Great and important point. What a great salvation we have, so personal and so glorious in seeking to follow in the way of Jesus.

I love the fact that God didn't tell us to go out and lose our lives for him while he selfishly held on to his. He led by example and blazed the trail and then he bids us to follow. He does not bid us go forth. He bids us to follow. Good thoughts.

Mark, In 1 John 2 (see verses 20, 27) Christians are said to have the anointing, chrisma. This is from the same roots as Jesus Christos.

Your question is a good one, and we forever remain distinct from Christ himself; he is the God-Man, we will never be that. Though we do have the same anointing and calling he had based on him and his work for us.

C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity does use this same terminology for us Christians.

We are called to be little Christs, you said. I know that is the literal meaning of the word "Christian" but it struck me as strange today. Questionable.

I've heard that the Bible only uses the word Christian in a few places. That's why some people prefer to be called "followers of Christ."

Seems like a silly semantic distinction on one hand. On the other, I wonder. What is the difference between a little Christ and a follower of Christ?

Besides one of them sounds like a garden gnome and one of them sounds like a student.
