Jesus Christ was begotten twice — once through man (Luke 2:7) and once through God (Psalm 2:7, Hebrews 1:5). So must we be (John 3:3-6, 1 Corinthians 15:53, 1 Peter 1:23).
Jesus Christ was baptized (Matthew 3:16). So must we be (Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16).
Jesus Christ lived a faithful life of obedient service to His Father and others (John 8:29, Hebrews 3:1-2).

Jesus Christ died and rose again (Matthew 28:5-7). So must we (Romans 6:4-11, Galatians 2:20, Colossians 3:3-4).

“A servant is not greater than his Master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him.” (John 13:16)
“For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.” (Romans 8:19)
