It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2

The Humility of Jesus – Duplicated In Our Lives

Humility is simply recognizing that we were created by God for His purpose and by allowing God to be all sufficient in all we do. Jesus displayed this when He became the Son of Man, being in subordination to God the Father by giving God the honor and the glory that was due Him.

Jesus constantly gave explanations regarding the work He came to do, which was that of the Father. Jesus would say of Himself, “the Son can do nothing of Himself; My teaching is not Mine; I do nothing of Myself; I have not come of Myself, but He sent Me; I seek not mine own glory; the word which ye hear is not Mine; I speak not from Myself; I seek not Mine own will.”

The constant and relentless theme of Jesus’ teaching was that His life’s work was to do the will of the Father. The Almighty God and Creator could use Him and work through Him to redeem mankind. Jesus emptied Himself and quitted and resigned Himself of His own will and power so that God could be all in Him. Jesus lived a life relinquished of self in absolute submission and dependence on The Father and to do His will.

Philippians 2:6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage. NIV

Jesus understood He had lost nothing by submitting all to God and by humbling Himself before men. Jesus knew His Father and knew that God would highly exalt those who humble themselves before Him. This is a spiritual principle, those who will exalt themselves God will bring down and those who humble themselves God will exalt.

Jesus submitted Himself to every railing, beating and even the death of the cross all while trusting God to be faithful to His promise. Jesus was exalted to the right hand of God on high. God honors those who trust Him.

1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. NIV

The humility Jesus displayed is a state of mind and a disposition of the soul. It is one that deliberately denies self and dies to prideful exaltation, while knowing that The Almighty God Jehovah is engineering and orchestrating every detail of our lives. This humility does not question the Creator or ask, “What have You done? Why am I here? Why have You made me this way? Humility recognizes the Potter’s power and authority to fashion the clay into whatever is needful and without question.

Romans8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

Some things we experience are for the glory of God. Our ability to walk through the hard challenges of life in love and in meekness may be the very thing God uses to help someone else to make it through life challenges. Just as Jesus experienced, railing and ridicule against Himself, it was not for Himself but for our benefit. He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities and we can have peace because of His chastisement. This is humility, Jesus is our standard not our experiences or the sayings of this world.

Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. KJV

Our life should reflect the life of Christ in knowing that it is God who works in all things and it is our responsibility to yield to God in perfect dependence and in full consent to be a vessel and a channel through which God can manifest Himself to a lost world. The very life of Jesus was a spirit of humility as a servant of God. We must count ourselves servants of God to show men God’s riches, His power, goodness and love.

2 Corinthians 3:18 So all of us who have had that vail removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image. NLT

God wants to work through us to be able to do His work of love in the earth. This can only be done in relationship with God, knowing Him as our Abba-Father. The God, who cares, provides and loves us all, while He is transforming us to be like Christ.

John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, and the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. NIV

Hebrew 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. NIV

With total trust in God as a loving Father can we duplicate the life Christ lived; in total dependence on God, knowing that He is the Most High God and that He rewards those who persistently seek him.

Redemption From Pride-Rooted in Humility

Jesus came to redeem that which was lost, mankind’s character of humility and fellowship with the Father. Humility is the root character of God. Pride is rooted in the spiritual wickedness of Satan, which has its satanic origin in when he rebelled in heaven. All humanity is now born into a fallen state of pride and rebellion against God. This is a terrible state of spiritual evilness that consumes the natural man. As long as we are blind to the bondage and wickedness of pride, we will never feel the need to be delivered and redeemed. It is not until we realize the terrible strength pride has over us that we recognize the need for deliverance. It is when our eyes are open to the hopelessness and despair of us never being able to conquer pride on our own, that we look to the power of Christ who is able to redeem us from this curse.

Only the humility of Jesus as the Lamb of God can redeem fallen mankind so the Spirit of God may live within us. Every form of evilness has its foundation in pride for it will degrade the highest of virtues. In the beginning mankind’s identity was rooted in the character of God’s humility. Then their nature was changed when they disobeyed God and took on the nature of Satan, which is pride.

Psalm113: The LORD is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes, with the princes of his people.

The first Adam sent all humanity spiraling down into spiritual depravity severed from God the Creator of all life. How much more Jesus, the second Adam, the Son of God, is able to redeem us to live a life of true humility? Those who are truly born of Christ will reveal His likeness with humility and love of God in their lives. When we are rooted in Him, His life and power gives us an abiding and overmastering life of humility, because from the root grows the increase, the fruit, of the nature of the tree. The tree is either good or not and the fruit will reflect the true nature of the tree. This is why Jesus tells us you will know them by their fruit. It is not by their conversation or their vocation but it is the product, result, and yield of their lives that you will know them. It is the soil that the trees or plants are rooted in which cause it to grow and gives it the ability to thrive.

1 Corinthians 15:45-49 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.

The life of the tree is in seed form and has the potential to grow into a great tree, so is the seed of God, the Holy Spirit, in mankind. The Holy Spirit enables us to live a life of humility, which is total dependence upon God, as we are rooted and grounded in His word. God humbled Himself to stoop and consider the earth and mankind even in their rebellion.

Matthew 12:33- 35 Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.

We as believers should study the humility of Jesus which is the secret hidden root of our redemption. Our salvation consists solely in being saved from ourselves, our natural fallen state of selfish pride. Jesus gave us the secret to a life lived in the supernatural power of God; to deny ourselves and take up our cross daily and follow Him. The cross is a picture of dying daily to self and living for the love of God in humility.

Luke 9:23-24 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. NIV

Self is the totality of the fallen nature of mankind and self-denial is our capacity of living like Christ. Pride and self-centeredness is the root of the evil and fallen state and bears the fruit of its kind. Humility is the core of our Saviour and humility is the root of the tree from which His branches bear fruit. Pride and humility are the two master powers. The greatest struggle for eternal life is between pride and humility and the kingdoms of darkness and kingdom of light in the fight for the eternal possession of the soul of mankind.

The virtue of humility in one’s life displays the kingdom of God on earth. The idol of self-elevation is from the nature of fallen man through the first Adam and it is only put to death by the power of the Holy Spirit which gives us the supernatural ability to live in humility. It is our trust in the completed work of Christ and His divine humility that dwells in us and works within and through us to redeem us back for what the Father created us to be; a reflection of His image in the earth.

Created in Humility – Totally Dependent on the Creator

Humility is total dependence on God. Recognizing and acknowledging that everything owes its life, being and entire survival to God the Creator and Sustainer of all that is and all that will ever be. True humility confesses it owes everything to God. It presents itself as an empty vessel for God to dwell and manifest Himself, His power and His goodness. When we humble ourselves we live a life under authority, understanding that every moment God is maintaining our lives by the perpetual operation of His Mighty power. We show the glory of God in the earth when we live with God as the ever-present and ever-knowing God working on our behalf. Even with it appears all is lost and there is no hope. The root of our humility and virtue is grounded in our entire dependence on God as our creator, sustainer, provider and protector.

Mankind was created in the image of God. God revealed Himself by His Spirit in and through mankind, His created beings. God created the world and the universe for mankind to be partakers of His abundant life and to be His glory in the earth. We were created to display the love of God, the power of God and the wisdom of God by our constant communion, and continued communication with God. Mankind’s lifeline, purpose and very existence rest on an intimacy and relationship with God who is ever-present. Our perfect union with God as Creator rests with our universal dependence on God as the only true and living God.

John 17:3-4 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. NIV

Pride is the loss of humility and pride is the root of every sin. In the beginning Satan pride was used to persuade Adam and Eve to listen to a lie rather than the truth of God. The desire to be as God is the source of pride, it is self-exaltation. The desire to lift up one’s self above ones created purpose leads to disobedience to God and an adoration of self. Even at the cost of denying God and destroying others. That is what happened in The Garden when sin entered the world. A life of humility is living under authority to God who created us, but when that is gone a life of pride and sin begins.

Jesus came as a man to bring us back into the right relationship with God and to give us a spirit of humility, which is total dependence on God as our Creator, our Source and our Sustainer. Just as Pride began in heaven with Satan declaring he would be exalted above God, Jesus the Son of God showed His humility in heaven by accepting the call to become a man. This humility Jesus displayed in heaven and He also performed on earth. Jesus humbled Himself and became obedient unto death on the cross and leaving us an example of humility dying to self.

Humility is of great value to God because it recognizes God as the ultimate power as Creator
of all that exists. God wants to reveal Himself to His creation through a life that totally trusts Him with their life, their existence and even their death. True humility understands it owes everything to God, this present life and life through all eternity. Knowing God’s love for us allows us to humble ourselves before Him. We know God wants to make us partakers of His goodness and His abundant life. It is by faith in the completed work of Jesus whom God sent to save us from pride and self-importance that we can live a life of humility through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Salvation is a gift from God. He imparts to us the Holy Spirit to transforms our lives for us to live humbly and in communion with God through the life and death of Jesus. It is Jesus’ disposition of humility that is rooted and grounded into every true believer in Christ. God in His redeeming work and love for all mankind allowed Jesus to take our place and pay our debt so that we may fulfill our created destiny which is to reflect the image of God. Jesus as a man lived a life of humility, under authority and His humility is our salvation. The salvation provide through Jesus should be reflected as humility in us.

The original state of mankind and their relationship to God was one of humility, complete dependence and total trust in God. So is the stamp, the hallmark and signature of a life saved by God is that of prevailing humility and love toward others. Humility is the root that gives us the right attitude to trust God and allow God to do all in our lives. Knowing whatever state we are in, we can trust God with the outcome. Because we know God is working all these hard and unpleasant things together for our good, His glory and our created purpose. He is working for us to reflect the good that is in the image of Jesus, not to feel good, look good and not even to be happy but to be transformed into an image that looks like God.

Romans 8:28-29 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters NIV

Humility is not something we bring to God but a state of mind; it is simply a sense of self nothingness, in and of ourselves, but capable of doing all things by the power of the Almighty God Who loves us. When we as created beings consent to align our will to God’s and to be one with Him, in His purpose, affections and pursuits we become a vessel for His glory. And the continued work of God, His truth and love will manifest itself through us to a lost world.

Humility is simply acknowledging God as creator and us as His creation. Yielding to God His place as the Most High God allows Him freedom to be everything in us and for us. This lost and dying world will see the light of His glory in a life lived out in us daily.

Blood Covenant of God!

We must speak honestly and frankly about God’s purpose, because it is the truth that will set us free from the lies of this world. We should not live in the darkness and with the lies the enemy has told us about ourselves and God. God said His people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

The world walks and lives in darkness but God’s people should walk in the light of His word. So many people perish because they do not know who they are or their created purpose. Too many have allowed the world to define their purpose and pursuits. They have fallen into the same trap as the world because they live like the world and not like children of The Most High God and according to His Kingdom.
This world system is going after the minds and hearts of the children and at a staggeringly young age. In earlier years we would read books and see movies about adults in their 30s learning about love and making life choices. Then times changed and they were having young teens learning of love and making life choices. Now we will see very young children being shown in movies and on media screens engaging in language and activities related to intimate relationships.
These tactics are tools used to ensnare the minds of these children before they are capable of understanding the impact and consequences of their actions. Close intimate acts and decisions are too heavy for these young children to shoulder without grave consequences to their own psychological and mental health. Many mature adults have difficulties navigating breakups of relationships that are physical and have mental soul ties and life’s rejections. How much more devastating for teens and young children engaging in such activities without the help of truth and sound counseling?

Many people fail to understand that an intimacy is more than a onetime act but has life impacting repercussions. Intimacy is not something that should be taken lightly and there is much to be said on this covenant that occurs between a man and a woman which is so important to God.

We must teach our children their value as children of the Most High King. They need to know they are in Christ and they are vulnerable as targets of this world system. This world will try to get them to go after a fallen way and forsake God and His Kingdom principles on earth. People have said children do not come with a handbook, but they do. God has given us His word, the Bible, to teach and instruct us and our children in the ways we should go. So few of Christ followers seek after His word and His way that many ends up living like the world and the world has lost sight of God’s kingdom on earth.

Most people are not asking God to direct their path, their lives and for Him to lead them. They are not seeking His word. God tells us ask Him and keep on asking until it be given, to seek Him and keep on seeking until we find Him; to knock and keep on knocking until the door is opened. Faith keeps going until it has the victory. Yet this fallen world system is trying to trap the minds of our young people into giving up and believing there is no hope, there is no help and that there is no God.

We must live our lives as Disciples of Christ in such a way that people will see the God in us and that His kingdom culture is real. Our lives should be a testimony that God is real. That He is actively involved in the lives of those who trust Him and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. This is not to say we will not have challenges, problems and concerns but to know that God will be with us in it all.

God is a faithful God and we live in a The Blood Covenant of God that has been purchased by Jesus Christ. Jesus shed His blood and we are now joint heirs with Christ. Our lives should reflect God’s kingdom power, His joy, His peace and His mercy and His love for all mankind.

Who and What Defines You? The Creator and Purpose!

The Bible is the one book of documented history that tells all, the good, the bad and the ugly. The Bible tells of the creation in the beginning of time of how God created the heavens and the earth and all that exists and He made time, space and matter. Life began as a beautiful love story of God the Creator and His love for His creation. Mankind was created in His image to reflect His love in the world He created and gave to them.

Life as it was created was destroyed by the deceiver and the authority of this world system was transferred to the deceiver, the father of lies, and the enemy of God. Evil began to reign over God’s creation and systems of lies, deceit and destruction became the method of operation in the world. Mankind lost their God given authority to rule and their ability to discern with spiritual wisdom. They no longer had the Spirit of God in them to show them God’s way. People were living in darkness and influenced by evil until Jesus came and brought God’s kingdom upon the earth.

We are now living in a time that measures most things by the measuring stick of economics, the ruling majority and social media. Society used to be concerned with truth and honor and about doing what was right morally with a standard of loyalty, commitment and honesty. These qualities have been replaced with getting ahead, making a profit, and with social and financial status. We can no longer trust people to heed to a code of conduct that will influence them to do the right thing. Most people will only have regard for the bottom line, revenue, status and influence.

We have allowed our children to sit before media screens or look at cell phones, which displays all types of deceitful lies about our world and who they should strive to be. This is a time when bullying is causing children and young people to take their lives and give up on the precious gift of the life God has given them. This is a sad state of affairs when strangers and people who have no vested interest in the lives of our children, can speak and influence them to a point of despair, so much so, that they are willing to take their own lives.

Parents have lost sight of their created purpose to train up their children in the way they should go. So when the world comes in and tries to steal, kill and destroy them, they do not have the truth of God’s word in them to dispel the lies of the enemy. In these times it seems even the parents fail to realize their primary role, purpose and function is to lead, guide and instill in their children the love, purpose and the design God has intended for them. Many people have allowed the norm of social media and the lies of this world to turn their focus on selfish, self-indulgences. They often do not take time to direct and esteem their children. Children have been labeled a financial burden to their parents or a nuisance by this world system and many people have fallen into that mindset; that trap of not recognizing and appreciating this wonderful gift from God.

This is why it is so important to understand and know where we get our information from, especially the information that tries to define us, our children and our communities. We can be trained by the lies of this world or the truth of God’s word.

Psalm 127: 3-5 Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates. NLT

God’s word is a stark difference from what the world system says about children. It is no wonder so many children do not have a good understanding of who they are or their purpose. The world is constantly telling them they are a bother to their family and worthless to society.

God has called children a gift and a reward from Him. If people valued their children as much as we value our 401K and our investment streams, we would take more time to instruct and lead them in the word of God and in the wisdom of God. When children are grounded and rooted in the love of God the enemy will not be successful in trying to kill and steal their lives. They can be like trees planted by the rivers of waters and not be moved by the storms. This is not to say they will not experience storms but like the house built on the Rock, they will weather the storm and will remain standing.

Jesus came to earth and payed all sin debt and through faith in Christ we are restored back into the family of God. Then we see the two world systems vying for our time, attention and obedience; the kingdom of God and this fallen world system of death and destruction. We must choose to believe God and trust His word. Then talk to our children about the love of God and choices they will face in life. We are to instruct them on how this world system will try to deceive them and tell them they are worthless but God has called them His Beloved, created in His Image for His glory. Let it be God our Creator, who defines us. Let God be the one who tells us who we are and tell our children they are a child of the Most High King, the apple of His eye and created in His love to be love.

The Gospel Is a Message of Love; the Power that Impels Us to Serve Others

Love is the most powerful force in the universe and the most misunderstood and distorted truth. If we want to know what is important to God, look at what His enemy has attacked relentlessly and ferociously. We will find mankind at the top of this list and their created purpose, which is to be and show the love of God in the earth.

When we grasp even a fraction of the depth of God’s love for us and His abundant Grace and Mercy we are able to rest in His love and that frees us to love others well. True love, God’s love thrust us into a life that gives and serves others. The spirit of Love is a spirit of gratitude and thankfulness for all we have received from God because of Jesus and for who He is and for all He has done for us. Love overflows and spills out with joy and delight from our inner spirit, the Holy Spirit, to those around us. Love transforms a life; love renews a life to see things differently, to think differently and to act differently. True love, the love of God gives of itself. God so loved the world that He gave, His best for the ones He loved. God gave Jesus the Son whom He loves to save creation which, He loved and had lost in a rebellious act of sin.

Love is patient; God sent Jesus thousands of years after the fall of mankind, at God’s appointed time, to save the world. God’s plan of salvation is offered to all who believe and accept Christ by faith. God did not fly off the handle in a whirlwind of emotions at the fall of mankind or first sign of trouble, as we tend to do. Love waited and gave all mankind an opportunity to repent, to change their mindset and the way they were thinking so to turn from the rebellious direction they were going.

God’s love and grace towards us is what drives us to love and serve others. With such an awesome display of love and grace displayed by God toward us this empowers us to show His Amazing love and grace to others. Love is something we have within but will inevitably spill out and overflow to those around us. That is the power of love, it cannot be contained.

Love; the true gospel of God transforms us internally so that we are at peace with our past, our struggles and those around us. Love enables us to turn from the idols that we made in our own hearts. The love of God, the gospel of God allows us to love and engage those who are different. We become no longer self-centered but God focused. God’s love gives us the power to die to self and propels us into action for the kingdom‘s sake and we are no longer satisfied with this carnal life of self-gratification that engulfs this fallen world system.

We are transformed into the Kingdom of God by the power of the Holy Spirit and God’s original purpose for all mankind is reborn within us. That is the gospel, dying to the old selfish self and being born again in the newness and likeness of Christ. Though we are born as babes with all the failings of a child we mature into adults, the Image of Christ. This is when we begin to make disciples and pray God’s will be done in us, in our home, family, community and society. Knowing His will is far greater than our own will and desires.

When we pray for God’s kingdom to come and His will be done we are acknowledging Jesus as our Sovereign Lord and for Him to reign in our hearts and of those around us. And that we live in accordance to God’s heavenly principles on earth. We are not just waiting to go to heaven when we die, we are living in God’s kingdom and bringing the light of God’s love, Grace and Mercy on earth where we live. We can begin loving our neighbors because the love of God in us compels us to die to our selfishness and to be concerned for others and to want the best for them.

The power of God’s love impels us to serve others and it is no longer a duty or drudgery. It becomes a natural outpouring of the love that is inside us. If love is not flowing naturally from us we must examine our hearts and seek The One who is love and ask Him to let His love flow through us. His love allows us to get our eyes off self and seek God’s will to be done in us so that Jesus will be glorified in our lives and in our actions. The love of God renews our heart but it will also change our desires to seek the best for others and their relationship with Jesus as their Saviour and Lord.

The Love of God Demonstrated In Our Lives

To demonstrate the love of God we must know the love of God and this is revealed in His word. We must know scripture so that we are able to interpret life through God’s truth and make application based on His word and not our experiences. Without knowing the word of God people will give advice and speak useless rhetoric from what they have been taught through life in this fallen world system. People will spew out the venom of what their society and life has taught them, rather than the truth of God’s word. It is only in God’s word that we can truly have life. God’s word is truth and it is life.

Jesus came and was our example. He showed us how to live a life with family and friends and before God. Jesus showed his disciples the way to live by living with them and by being the person and living the life He wanted them to live. It was not enough for Jesus to speak spiritual things to those around Him He had to live the life of a God centered person in a fallen world, with fallen people. Jesus knows our actions define who we are. We live by what we do daily and what we do every day is who we are and who we will become.

Jesus demonstrated a life of prayer. He often prayed before His disciples allowing them to see Him talk with God, His Father. The disciples were able to see where Jesus received His strength and comfort and that prayer was the secret to Jesus’ success and power. Jesus did not force His disciples to pray He kept praying before them until they asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. Jesus then gave them in a very elementary way what to say and how to pray. Sometimes it is necessary to give people small and very specific steps to take. We may think because a person has been in church for years or because they are elderly, they have certain knowledge but this is not so. Jesus gave these disciples, these grown men exactly what to say. Jesus wanted the disciples to grasp the importance and the meaning of prayer; because it is only through prayer things are changed.

We have the Holy Spirit living in us to bring to our remembrance the word of God. Therefore, it is necessary to know God’s word in order to remember it. Some people want to just regurgitate what they have heard others say in a sermon or a talk. Reading and knowing God’s word with a personal interaction between us and God, by the power of the Holy Spirit, is how we know truth. We read scriptures which, reflects to us the image of God and who we are in Him. When we know the word of God then it can become the authority of what we say and pronounce about life and ourselves. We will know the truth by the word of God and the confirmation of the Holy Spirit in us.

Jesus demonstrated that our ultimate concern should be for the souls of mankind. The ultimate purpose or the original purpose of God has not changed; that mankind would replenish the earth with life that reflects the Glory of God on the earth. Our lives must reveal the spiritual truth of God’s word and show that we can live a life in God’s love. It is only by the love we have for others, even at the cost of self, that we can demonstrate God’s kingdom reigns on earth and in our hearts, in our lives, in our homes and in our communities. If the things of this world, money, riches, or self-preservation, take precedent over the love of God for the lost, then Jesus is not Lord of that life.

Remember, Jesus showed us how to become the message and to do what needed to be done. Jesus recognized the need in every person to know God, because they were created by Him and for Him. It is love that draws people to God and love can only be displayed through faith. It is faith in God that causes us to love others even when it is against our own nature to do so. Love inspires people to be open to salvation. When people see true acts of love and kindness in the face of hate and diversity, people will know there is a difference in the world’s way and God’s people. It is this difference that will cause others to decide that they want their lives to be transformed into people for God’s kingdom of life and love.

Jesus was always before His disciples and the people teaching them about God and His kingdom by the life He lived. The things we say and do daily demonstrate what we believe about Christ. Jesus told the disciples many would say Jesus was Lord but only the true believers will take action to show He is Lord in their daily walk. Those who feed the hungry, visit the sick, those in jail and help the poor, they will demonstrate Jesus as Lord.
Jesus demonstrated with His life just as we must demonstrate with our lives the word of God works. It is relevant to life today.

Remember, we are constantly demonstrating to our children and those around us about our faith, trust and love for God by how we treat others. Jesus lived as an example and may we live as an example for others. We are learning and teaching everyday by the things we do and say. We may not be perfect but when we learn better, we should do better. Our lives are a reflection of who God is in us; follow me as I follow Christ. We are God’s exhibit.
