Here are my reflections and comments from today’s scripture from Our Daily Inspirations App.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, before I read or comment on God’s word, I pray that He prepares my heart to receive his guidance and ask that He uses me as his vessel to comment on His word. If you want to leave comments or feedback, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. I believe I can lay down my life for others by putting others needs before my own. God bless you.
The scripture is from 1 John 3:16: “By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.”
The devotion is titled Live Your Life as Jesus Did by Pastor Ken and Joyverse. The authors wants us to to take a moment to stop and think of the Jusus’ unfathomable love for us when He died on the cross for us. The only reason He endured the humiliation, pain, misery, and horror was because He loved us more than anything. Jesus didn’t want to live for eternity without us. Even if you were the only sinner on the planet, Jesus would have suffered and died just to save you. The more we understand the magnitude of His sacrifice, the more we will be inspired to have a personal and intimate relationship with Hom. As our relationship grows and matures, we will begin to think and act like Jesus. We will be willing to give up our own life plans so others will have a chance to know Jesus the way we do. In conclusion, live life the way Jesus did, for our heavenly Father and for others.
Reflections, Questions, and Challenges for Us: How can we develop a mor Christ-like character so others will see Jesus’ reflection in us?
Here is my response, yours may be different: I will continue to put others needs before my own.
A Personal Prayer for us: Dear God, thank You for showing us how we should live through Jesus Christ. Please guide our lives so we can reflect His character in all we do and say. Give us the courage and faith to dedicate our lives to others because we know Jesus is our life and resurrection. In Jesus’ mane we pray, Amen.
