Hey friends, we often want to love like Jesus but without stepping into who He is and letting Him love us and us receiving that we will not be able to pull it. It wont be real and wont be from the heart. Here is a song you can use as a prayer as you commune with His Spirit asking Him to make you like Him.
Dear friends, you know you can be having a neighbor and observe them daily from your house and know a lot about him or her, isn’t ? But till the time you actually go and make a contact with that neighbor you cannot really say you “know” your neighbor. You can say a lot about him or her or them though. It is the same way with our Heavenly Father. We can read His word, talk about Him with our brothers and sisters in Christ and even hear sermons all day long. We can only say we know about God but we cannot say we know Him. The life in Christ and living by the Spirit hinges on knowing God , having an experiential knowledge or literally living with Him knowing Him. When we know Him truly , faith is an automatic response to that. When we know Him, loving Him is automatic because we then respond to the love He has given and gives to us daily. When we know Him, loving ourselves and loving others the way He does with the destiny He has decided , will also be just as automatic. Enjoy this sermon by Dan Mohler where he addresses the real key to becoming love is knowing who our Father is .
Do you know the reason you always feel you are failing in living as a Christian , in living by the Spirit ? The answer is so simple : if you see yourself or be apart from Jesus and what He has already finished by the Cross , you will fall apart. Its just as simple as that. The reason you find yourself struggling, feel like you are not able to liv upto a mark of perfection in Christ is because you have shifted your focus away from Jesus and His finished work and placed it on your work in getting there. The Holy Spirit through Paul asks the Galatians , and is speaking to us now : How do you think what was was started in The Spirit, you will be able to finish it by flesh and your own way of doing this ?
The fact is that once we get to know what He has done for us and what we have become because of Him we can take that understanding and truth to Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of grace and you we yield ourselves to Him and His work , denying ourselves and our own way of thinking which seems right. We let Him work in us instead, in that willing surrendered place. Its His grace that has the power to shape us into what He has already made us to be. It is a simple gospel . It is not complicated but once we try to lean on our own understanding on how we must get there and miss out on the oneness we are called for with Holy Spirit we will miss it. See it is so simple, the moment we find our minds in other places than being on Him , we call them back to order and we thank Him for the work He is doing in us. This transformation into Christ we have been called for was never supposed to be on us. All we bring is our yieldedness and surrender to Him and saying we want to become like Christ. It is not some fast microwave method. We have been called to a walk of faith , believing Him, His finished work and fellowship with Him. That is exactly where we must keep ourselves.
In order to understand this truth of what we have been called to, i encourage you dear friend to listen to this teaching by Pastor Dan.
There is such a freedom where truth just comes and sets up free. Even the questions, reasoning and pondering we have held just fall to the ground when truth hits us. Therefore be encouraged to receive truth into your life in order to walk in the freedom in Christ you have been called for. Bless you!
