Walk as Jesus walked

1 John 2:6 Whoever claims to live in him, must walk as Jesus did.

How did Jesus walk:

Confidently in the will of his father.
Unconditional love to the brokenhearted, the least, the lost, the last. 
Grace extended to the sinner. 
Wisdom in his actions and words. 
Merciful, compassionate, kind, boldly, purposefully.

Jesus knew exactly who he was.  He knew his father and the greatness and love of his father.

Jesus  didn't worry about money or needs.  Jesus did not care about acquiring possessions.

Jesus did experience heartbreak.  Rejection by family.  Rejection by his very people. Grief over death of loved ones.  Yet he continued to rely and trust on his father.

Jesus knew to spend time with his father, knew the importance of prayer.

I must learn to walk as Jesus did.  I must walk as he did in my life to glorify him and make the father known.

  1. As one might expect, I know none like this and nearly as few who even care to try. Pity that
