“Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” John 5:19
God has created mankind in his own image with the intention that his children carry his nature and character.
The Word of the Lord says that we are born in sin and brought up with rebellious nature in our disobedience. But the love of God comes to rescue us while we were still persisting in our rebellious nature. It is by grace that we are saved. (Eph. 2:8). When we believe on the eternal plan of salvation, we are marked with the Holy Spirit who is our divine helper. The Spirit comes to teach us how to pray and live a life that pleases the Lord.
When we spend more time in the presence of the Lord and meditate on His word and not pay attention to the fleshly desires, we become sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
God has given us tools to quiet our rebellious nature and empowered us by his word to pull down any voice that tries to raise itself against the nature of God. Speaking the Word to ourselves is the easiest way to quiet all sort of voices that try to find a place in the members of our body.
The more we practice walking by the Word of God, the more our inner being becomes strengthened and we become able to live a life that pleases God, our father.
Jesus left us a pattern by looking at the father and imitating his actions and words. We should try to live a Christ centered life by imitating Christ pattern of life so that we may continue to walk as children of God on this earth.
Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If you have, the you have been added into God’s household as his child. But the act of salvation doesn’t stop there, Being a member of God’s family, you become an active part of God’s plan of salvation for all. It becomes the responsibility of those who are reconciled to God that they work hard to reconcile others to God. So that more could be added to God’s household.
Look at the father and listen what the Spirit is saying to you, then follow HIS words and actions! Live the life of a child of God by imitating Jesus’ pattern. Get closer to God every day by listening to him closely so that God may empower you to bring many to the closeness of God.
