Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father, but by Him. He is the Way, that means before we can make it to Heaven, we have to walk on the Path he walked. We have to say what He said, and do What He did. He said in Matthew 5:16 that Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. In other words, people should be able tell who we are by the way we conduct ourselves.
To live the Jesus’ life is to ask yourself the question; Would Jesus think, say, or do what I am about to think, say or do? What would Jesus do if He is faced with what you are facing? Before we make any decision, or take any action.
To live the Jesus’ Life is to acknowledge the statement that a servant is not greater than his Master. That is He is greater than us so we should not conform ourselves to this world or compromise on our faith in Him.
To live the Jesus’ life is to have compassion on lost souls; Souls that are heading toward hell. We must win souls for His Kingdom. We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work. John 9:4 NLT
To live The Jesus’ life is to feed His sheep. Most shepherd today are not feeding their sheep. Jesus fed the multitude before sending them away. But what we see today is different. The sheep are struggling to survive while the shepherds are living luxurious lives, all in the Name of God’s blessings. Jesus encouraged the rich young man to sell all he had and give them to the poor. We must live Jesus’ life.
To live the Jesus’ live is to be ready to sacrifice for others. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13. Jesus sacrificed his life us. He showed his love for us by dying for our sins. I always tell people that my definition for Love is Sacrifice. If you can’t sacrifice, then you can’t love. Let us love our neighbours, forgive them when they sin against us, and be very generous.
To live the Jesus’ life is to Crucify the flesh. Jesus said “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. Crucifying the flesh means turning away from things that destroy the Spirit. We must say no to the desires of the flesh daily And focus on things above. We must fix our eyes on things above, that is we must lay for ourselves treasures in Heaven.
Friends Jesus coming soon. Let us all watch and pray, encouraging one another, loving one another, and caring for one another.
Jesus is coming soon!
Hi “De Preacher” you message has some powerful Truths and from our previous conversations I’m thankful to know that your willing to learn more. Jesus is our only Teacher and by The empowering of The Holy Spirit He teaches us all things but like you I’m still learning, Sometimes as I write Jesus is Teaching me something that I did not know but mostly having asked for and received God’s wisdom (see link ) as I read other peoples messages I’m convicted of Truth or error or needed Scripture in confirmation of them.

Galatians 4:6- 7 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
John 15:13-15 Greater Love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Our flesh must be put to death not just ignored, it will always seek to control, we can’t walk in The Spirit, if our flesh motivates us, good and evil cannot co- exist. To be perfected in Love our flesh Nature must be done away with by The Spirit, so we choose to walk in His Fruit by His empowering in this way we come close to God and the Devil flees. Being Born again of God’s seed and having the mind of Christ is an assurance that no Temptation will be greater then we can bear.
Galatians 24 -25 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Romans 6 : 1 – 2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.
Christian Love from both of us – Anne
