Are You a Christ Copy Cat?

And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Are you a Christ copy cat?

Jesus called out to them,“Come, follow me.” Matthew 4:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Make no doubt about it, when Christ calls us (and He comes to us before we come to Him) He does so not only to be our Savior but also to be our King.

Now He is a good King who leads by example (that is what all good leaders do. Think about that the next time you vote in any election).

But, He expects us to follow His leading.

Anyone who does not serve Jesus as king in their life is not a Christian Joseph a son of Jehovah

That sounds pretty severs doesn’t it?

But, will Jesus welcome you as the good servant at Heavens Gate or will He tell you to get away from Him as you are cast into Hell?

Now, as you serve Christ in your life you will draw others towards you. You will serve as their guide to Christ. As a Christ follower you are to be an example of imitating Christ to your protege.

Speaking from personal experience that is a difficult but oh so rewarding task to accomplish for the glory of Christ and the salvation of another.

When you become a Christian, you are putting yourself on display for the world to see Christ through you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh my adoring Jesus Christ Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend John 15:15 ) I idolize you so much and have a deep desire to emulate You in all of my thoughts, words and deeds.                                              Please Holy Spirit help me to live my life in harmony with Jesus so as to not only please Him but to be a bright shining light to guide those in darkness to His divine light.                                                               I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Will Never Get it Back.

                                          

 So then, while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity.Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the greatest regrets in life is the missed opportunities to help others. It was times when I intentionally turned my back on the opportunity. Afterwards the devil laid a guilt trip on me by trying to tell me Jehovah was ashamed of me. That is not true but He was disappointed.

True, He will present many other opportunities and regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame even though He forgives me. 

The other regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame in the heart.

“If you lose an Opportunity you will be like one who lets the bird fly away; you will never get it back.” — John of the Cross

Do not dwell on your failure to do good when the opportunity arises but pray the Holy Spirit blesses you with being attentive to the opportunities and to bless you with the fortitude to obey Jehovahs nudging to do good. It is hard at first but once you make a habit out of it it becomes easier and your life is filled with a lot of joy.

Prayer: All glory to You my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for Your favour of blessing me with bountiful opportunities to do good unto others so as to help them and to glorify Thy most Holy name. The added benefit is the expansion of spiritual wealth that multiplies with each act of goodness unto others. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose gift of His sacrifice blessed me with adoption into Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In Their Blind Conceit

Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.” Psalm 36:1-2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Conceit is described in the dictionary as: an often unjustified feeling of being pleased with oneself or with one’s situation or achievements

I have met so many that are so full of themselves that it is painful to be around them for more that two minutes. They think the whole world revolves around them. They cannot say a sentence without glorifying themselves. They are the epitome of arrogance.

Of course they only live for themselves.

They lie, steal, cheat and do anything to glorify themselves and bring luxury to themselves.

This is their downfall because they are very lonely (who wants to be around a braggart?).

They are susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. Because they drool at being with the in crowd they fall for the lies that drug and alcohol abuse is fun. Using drugs and alcohol brings short term pleasure that leads to a life time of hell. Yeah it is fun to start with but becomes addictive and you become its slave. It is a cruel master.

I have done volunteer work with addicts and the same story is repeated with every one of them. It started out as fun with their buddies but soon became addictive. In the end, it destroyed their lives. I have met many that were successful by the worlds standards (doctors, lawyers and such) that had their lives destroyed by alcohol and drugs and were homeless.

We are all one step from the gutter, that is why we need Christ to guide our steps away from it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Sin has a diminishing factor to it. It always gives it’s best in the beginning. It never gets better after that … it only gets worse.” — Mark Aulson

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) save me from the deceptive snares of addictions that destroy the body, mind and spirit. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the strongest defense against these whiles Jesus Christ. Amen.

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