The More We Become Like Him.

 Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well beloved children [imitate their father]. Ephesians 5:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whether you like it or not when you become an adult your personality and disposition always imitates one of your parents. Being older now I can see this through four generations.

Now the more time we spend with someone the more we become like them ( just ask any couple that has been married for thirty years or more ) so it only stands to reason that the more time we spend with Christ the more we become like Him.

Now just like with any family there are rules of conduct and behaviour.

So too it is with Jesus’ family. Many of these rules will be foreign to us and down right unattainable. That is when we are blessed with the Divine assistance of the Holy Spirit who will mentor us through the muddy waters and discipline us when we go astray. The more we attain this the more we resemble Christ.

“The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him.” — H. E. Fosdick

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for all the help you have made in encouraging, guiding and moulding this child of Yours to emulate His cherished Heavenly Beloved every day in every way. I exalt You in the name of my big brother whom I idolize and desire to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. The idea of a parent God is very powerful indeed. I think we are the only world religion that grasps this aspect of the Divine – but there again, Christians are the only ones who know Jesus as their friend.

  2. Thank you for this wrting!
