The Imitation of Christ

April 25, 2019

There’s a funny thing about people. We seem to have a need to conform to something or someone. Children, for example, are great imitators; it is how they learn. One day I was walking across campus behind a fellow faculty member who, because of an old injury, walked with a peculiar, bowlegged gait. Alongside him was his very young son who, although he had nothing wrong with his legs, was walking exactly like his dad. But the curious thing about it is that this childhood tendency doesn’t go away when we grow up.

Every man walks in an image. When you look at people, ask yourself: What is that man’s image of himself? What is that woman’s self-image? Soon enough, you will come to understand what I mean. What I wish is that more people, young people in particular, could come to understand is that there is an even higher standard of conformity.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:1–2 NIV).

About Born to Win

Born to Win is the radio ministry of Christian Educational Ministries (CEM). CEM is a service ministry with two major goals, first, to share the Gospel with the world and make disciples for Jesus Christ and secondly to teach those disciples of Jesus all that He commanded His disciples to do (Matthew 28:19-20). Paul later expanded on this in his last letter to Timothy:

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be proficient and equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17 from KJV and NRSV).

CEM was founded to serve the public, individual Christians of every stripe, and community based churches in every tradition. We are an independent, nondenominational ministry.

About Ronald L. Dart

Ronald L. Dart (1934–2016) was a gifted teacher of the Word of God. People around the world have come to appreciate Ron’s easy style, his non-combative approach to explaining the Bible, and the personal, almost one-on-one method of explaining what’s going on in the world in the light of the Bible.

People say they get hooked on Ron’s depth of insight into the Bible and appreciate the unique gift for clarity and simplicity that enable him to hold an audience. His listeners don’t want to miss a word this broadcaster has to say and they want their community to hear it as well.

Mr. Dart was born to young parents on a farm just south of Harrison, Arkansas. His father worked for the railroad and also sang bass with the Melody Four Quartet. He started school in a one room schoolhouse in Gaither, Arkansas and finished high school in Houston, Texas where he met his wife to be, Allie Driver. He joined the Navy in September of 1952 and earned the rating of petty officer first class in four years.

After the Navy, Ron attended Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Texas for two years, and Ambassador College for two years, getting a bachelor’s degree. Ron served as a pastor of a church, and returned to college to get his Master’s Degree. Then he went to the University of Texas, in Austin and did work towards his doctor’s degree in communications.

It is through his continued studies in theology and communications that Ron’s gift for teaching the Word of God became evident. He has taught Old Testament Survey, Epistles of Paul, and public speaking. He has CDs of sermons he has given on virtually every book in the Bible. After retiring from teaching and church administration in 1995 he started Christian Educational Ministries and the Born to Win radio program.
