John 14:9 …he that hath seen me hath seen the Father…
LORD Jesus’ primary purpose was to reveal our Father to us. LORD Jesus lived His Life as a revelation to us of our Heavenly Father, and we are commanded to go forth in His Name and do the same. How do I in my daily life follow LORD Jesus’ example? How will I today, by living my life, reveal our Heavenly Father to those I meet? Will they see the love, goodness, and compassion of GOD our Father? Or, will they see something that is an inaccurate representation of Him? LORD GOD, help me to live my life following LORD Jesus’ example. Help me to live my life in Your Way that Your LOVE, Goodness, and Compassion may be revealed to those I interact with every day.
Why do I feel the need to “be right” about things, like in a discussion on Facebook? Should I not rather be known for leading people in love to the discovery of truth in whatever subject is being discussed? Should I not make sure I actually understand the point they are trying to make instead of assuming I know where they intend the conversation to go? Shouldn’t the patience and love of GOD be displayed through me even in Facebook discussions?
I need to participate in all things with wisdom, knowledge, understanding, love, patience, and humility.
I need to know Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is here to help me and guide me into all truth and righteousness, yet I live most of my life totally oblivious to Him. Holy Spirit, please forgive me, and help me to know You as You Are.
