To walk as Jesus walked

1 John 2.6 always floors me: "The one who says he abides in him ought himself to walk as he walked."

I am floored at the truth that it is my aspiration to walk as Jesus walked; and I am floored at the reality of how miserably I fail to meet that aspiration. Both nonetheless point me to the same promise, "If anyone sins, we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ the righteous" (1 Jn 2.1).
