3 Ways To Be More Like Jesus (Part 3)

The ideal is that we all want to be more like Jesus, to reflect His love and shine His light everywhere we go but the truth is, its not easy to be like Jesus.

Yet the good news is, Jesus doesn't judge us based on our works, and He has given us grace to imitate Him.

(Also, you're not alone, and we are in this together!)

 

7. Obedience

Obedience can be hard – it can be scary and it requires lots of faith. But obedience is always greatly rewarded.

God does not want your sacrifice, He wants your obedience. Jesus was always obedient, and He surrendered Himself to the will of the Father.

 

8. Study the Word

When Jesus was a little boy and He was lost for 3 days, where was He? At the church, listening and study the Word of God.

When Jesus was tempted by the devil, what weapon did He use against the devil and won? The Word of God.

In the same way, we must also study and meditate on the Word of God, and always use Scriptures to face and deal with our challenges in life.

 

9. Seek first His Kingdom

Jesus devoted His whole life to the work of the ministry to do His Father's will.

Are you making the Kingdom of God a priority in your life? Let's be all about our Father's business!

 

Father, we thank You for Your unconditional love over us. As we grow to be more like Jesus, we lean on Your grace and ask for double portion of Your strength. Thank You that You are in this journey with us. Help us to obey You in all things, give us a hunger for Your Word, and grant us the desire to be all about Your business. Help us Lord, to grow to be more like Jesus, and to build Your kingdom! Amen!
