Live Your Life as Jesus Did

by Pastor Ken

By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

1 John 3:16

How often do you really stop and think about the unfathomable love of Jesus who died on the cross for you? Do you really understand the depth and magnitude of what He did?

The more fully you understand the love of Jesus, the closer you will be to Him. Understanding the magnitude of His sacrifice will inspire you to have a personal and intimate relationship with Him. As this relationship grows and matures you begin to think and act like Jesus—possibly even being willing and ready to give your life for others so that they will have a chance to know Jesus the way you do.

Live life the way Jesus did—for our heavenly Father and for others.

Pray: Father, thank you for showing me how I should live through Jesus Christ. Guide my life so that I can reflect His character in all I do and say. Give me the courage and faith to be willing to lay down my life for others because I know Jesus is my life and resurrection. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
