To be like Jesus

ATD 98The Word

“Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:6

Thought

Often it is the brief and simple statements which contain the weight and depth of truth and power. Statements which, when applied, turn confusion to understanding and darkness to light. Such is the above as the benefits of God’s mercy and grace are found in the following of His Son.

John says clearly the proof of our proclamation as Christians is in living life as Jesus did. Christ’s life for us to follow is revealed in the Gospels. He loved perfectly, and His focus was the will of His Father. He was selfless, with pure motive and character. All who say they are of Christ will look and live as He did.

Prayer

I find myself with this simple prayer to You this morning, Lord Jesus. Please, by the enablement of Your Holy Spirit, cause me to look and live like You, so that my life may be of genuine value in bringing honor to You. Amen.
