Yesterday we talked about being holy. Today I want to share with you our greatest example to live that type of life. You see a Christian is not a label that you wear, it’s not something that you put on one day and take off the other. Christianity is a way of life, because we follow Christ who is example. Read this verse with me,
Ephesians 5:1-2 NIV, “Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God”.
We are so blessed to be able to have a great example as Jesus is. On how to live a holy life. Christ gave himself so that you and I could have access to God. Jesus even gives us the Great Commandment, which is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength. And says, the second is like this, love your neighbor as yourself. When we look at Christ’s life we see how much he loved the father, on many occasions we read and His Word how he would go off and pray. And yet another occasion we would see his great compassion for the people. If we want to be like Christ we must follow his example live on life serving him and others. Today it is my prayer that as you go through your day that you walk in the way of the Lord following the example of Christ, loving others and meeting their needs. No matter what you go through today always remember that God is with you. Blessings to you Chaplain Fernando Charles
