LET JESUS INSPIRE YOU – Pastor Chris
FRIDAY 4TH, FEBRUARY 2022.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another (John 13:35).
Every so often, I read about Jesus in the Word and I’m greatly inspired. I see no greater example, no greater model. I’m inspired by His thoughts, by His deeds, His passion, His love, His excellence. His words went forth with power. Men heard Him and were transformed forever. Demons heard His voice and scampered in terror. Circumstances responded to His words. How could He be so powerful and yet so loving, forgiving and gracious?
Jesus inspires me so much that all I ever want is to be like Him. But He sent us the Holy Spirit to help us act like Him, think like Him, be powerful, loving and passionate like Him. When you’re filled with the Spirit, you’re filled with Jesus. That’s the Spirit that made Him everything that He was in the earth. Today, in His love, He gave us the same Spirit in full measure. Hallelujah!
No wonder He said, “…as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you” (John 20:21). So, we go with the same love, same power, same passion, same forgiveness, same grace. Hallelujah! Don’t entertain anything that’ll make you bitter or enraged towards someone else. Let Jesus inspire you. Walk in love and inspire others to love.
Be like Jesus! When He walked this earth, He was God tabernacled in human flesh, full of grace, glory and truth. And the Bible says, “…As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). That means you can think, walk, talk, and act like Him!
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for being my inspiration and the personality of my deepest affection. You’re full of grace, glory and truth, so powerful, yet so loving, forgiving and gracious! Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to make me the very embodiment of your character and personality. Your grace, wisdom, love and righteousness are manifested in and expressed through me today and always. Amen.
