I’ve been thinking afresh about what it means to look, live, and love like Jesus—every day. How will I know if it has been a “good” day? How can I make it a “good” day in my humble attempts to look, live, and love like Jesus?
This morning, my “Through the Bible in a year” reading took me to 1 John 2:5-6: “But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.”
That’s practical. If I want to look, live, and love like Jesus, I need to pay attention to His Word. More than that, I need to obey His Word. It’s through our obedience that we more completely look, live, and love like Jesus. This is the path to living as Jesus did.
Here are some questions that have helped me consider daily opportunities to apply God’s Word.
- Is there any example for me to follow?
- Is there any command for me to obey?
- Is there any error for me to avoid?
- Is there any sin for me to forsake?
- Is there any promise for me to claim?
- Is there any new thought about God Himself?
What a life changing journey! Ellen and I are so blessed to share this adventure with each of you. On the way—every day—living life as Jesus lived!
