Because of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption.
1 Corinthians 1:30
Jesus’ disciple John, at the beginning, was such an angry person, Jesus nicknamed him a “son of thunder.” However, when John walked with Jesus all the time, later he became a “disciple of love.” He understood God is love - agape love. Later, in his old age, John was so close to Jesus, Jesus had him write the future Master Plan, that book we call the Revelation, the last book of the Bible.
Imagine: you, like John, are with Jesus all the time. You think of Jesus always, whatever you do, wherever you go, so much so, you start to think as Jesus does. You act like Him. You decide everything as Jesus does. You are now in Jesus. That means, if you and Jesus are so close you become one, your life will demonstrate continual growth towards God’s character.
When you continue this spiritual journey with Jesus, one day you will find Jesus becomes your wisdom. When you are with Jesus all the time, He transforms your life and gradually your life reveals Jesus’ righteousness.
And then, Jesus will have you reach a holy character as sanctification happens. Finally, He will complete His full redemption, the salvation of God for eternity. What a wonderful Jesus!
Prayer: Yes, Jesus, I want to have a close relationship with You as John did. I will be with You all my life. So, one day I will be like You. Thank you for making me so. In Jesus’ loving name, I pray, amen.
