11/09/16 Daily Imitation
“The highest honor you can bestow on Jesus is to imitate Him in your daily life. He lived to make that visible. He died to make that possible. He now lives as a witness to the wonder of what has been accomplished.”
John 6:57 AMP
Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me.
1 Cor. 11:1 NIV
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
Ephesians 3:10-12 AMP
10) [The purpose is] that through the church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere.
11) This is in accordance with the terms of the eternal and timeless purpose which He has realized and carried into effect in [the person of] Christ Jesus our Lord.
12) In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).
1 John 2:6 AMP
Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself.
The life that we have been given is more wondrous than we can ever imagine. Immense heavenly resources were spent so that you and I can flow in the character of Jesus Christ for eternity through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are His because of Him. We remain His because He lives.
Thank You, Jesus!
