Good morning everyone. The question of the day is; “how are you living your life?” I asked myself this question and was a little upset with my honest answer. If you really look at how you live your life, you will find that you like me,  need a lot of work to get where we are supposed to be. We will feast on the real answer today but first we will pray.

Today’s Prayer

Jesus, Christianity is not blindly following a list of rules, but rather building a relationship with You, isn’t it? To know You as our Lord and friend, we must spend time with You, study Your Word, know Your plan for our lives, experience Your love, recognize Your joys and Your sorrows, and share ours with You. Relationships require nurturing, don’t they? Help us do our part, to study Your Word and to understand Your rules. Only then will we understand that You want the best for us, and why You have called some actions sin. In Your name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

One of the Twelve

And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. – 2 Corinthians 5:15

It is believed that there were about 5,000 believers during the time of Christ. Among those believers, it was thought there were three types. The first and largest numbers of believers were those who came to Jesus for salvation. They served Him little beyond coming to Him to receive salvation. The second and much smaller number, say 500, actually followed Him and served Him. The third group was the disciples. These were those who identified with Jesus. They lived the life that Jesus lived. Each of these individuals ultimately died in difficult circumstances. They experienced the hardships, the miracles, and the fellowship with God in human form.

If you had to say which group best represented your life, which one would you fall into-the 5,000 who simply believed, the 500 who followed and sought to implement what they were learning from the Savior, or the 12 who identified completely with the life and mission of the Savior? Jesus has called each of us to identify with Him completely. “This is how we know we are in Him: Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did” (1 John. 2:5-6).

Pray that God will allow you to walk as Jesus did. Experience His power and love in your life today so that others will see the hope that lies in you.

Quote of the Day

It makes a great difference in our feeling towards others if their needs and their joys are on our lips in prayer; as also it makes a vast difference in their feelings towards us if they know that we are in the habit of praying for them. There is no chasm in society that cannot be firmly and permanently bridged by intercession; there is no feud or dislike that cannot be healed by the same exercise of love.
