What if He were to imitate the way we behave?

"Let us not fail to be moved by his goodness, for if he were ever to imitate the way we behave ourselves, we would be truly lost."

-- from St. Ignatius of Antioch's letter to the Magnesians

Rather than continuing to talk of imitating Christ, maybe it would be more revealing to ask -- even imagine -- what it would look like if Christ imitated us?
