The church that I attend will provide these small bookmarks with verses to read for three months, typically a chapter a day. This month is the first time I've taken it upon myself to follow these readings. I won't lie, I'm not always excited to do it and I haven't done it everyday, but I must say, the more I do it, the more I find myself desiring to be just like Him. A couple verses that stuck out from my passage today were the following:
1 John 3: 21-24 (NIV)
"Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the spirit he gave us."
Do not just believe in Jesus Christ, obey his teachings, follow in his footsteps and dare to be as much like him as you possibly can. A question I have to challenge myself with is "Do I relate so closely to Jesus that my friends feel like their friends with Him?" "Does my fiance' feel like she's marrying Jesus?"
Ask yourself the same thing.
