Living like Jesus Christ – Prayer for December 28. Some of the people we deal with on a regular basis are anxious that we do everything in the way they like. They want we conform to them externally or in our character and behave as their trends and habits dictate. Romans 12: 2 says, “Do not conform to this world …” And 3 John 1:11 says “do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.“ The only example we should follow- living like Jesus Christ.
Bible Verse for Today
“but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:15-16)
Such people will always try to press us into their scheme. This is partly due to their own insecurity. They feel better about what they do when others do the same. Only a few people can be themselves and let others be themselves.
Can you imagine how good the world would be if we were able to be ourselves? If everyone could be sure of themselves and let others stand as they are? Then we would not have to adapt convulsively and imitate each other. Have the courage to believe that you can be an imitator of Christ only and break out of the pattern of this world! Stop doing what we know is wrong and seek to live like Jesus did.
