Walking Your Faith - Chaplain’s Blog
“For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” NKJV
Beloved in Christ,
No man has ever been a better example of righteous living than Jesus the Christ. He lived a perfect, sinless life. He was giving, loving, benevolent, caring, serving and passionate about healing people. He was selfless in every action and relentless in pursuit of His goal.
In John 15:13 Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." When you place the wants and needs of others before your own wants and needs you lay down your life for them. Serving others is serving God. We should be following Jesus' example. Is that example too lofty for us? No, friends, it is not! Once you have surrendered your will to Jesus as your Lord and Savior, He starts His work in you. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can rise above the greedy flesh. You can be the example of Jesus in the lives of everyone around you.
Walking your faith? Jesus shows us how to live. Doing your part means abiding it what He has taught us. Shalom!
ABBA, Father God,
Thank You for Your selfless gift of dying on a cross for the forgiveness of my sinfulness. Please grant me Your love and passion for people. Help me to place the wants and needs of others before my own. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can show the love of Jesus to those around me. In Jesus' precious name and for Your glory. Amen.
