How to live a good life by getting to know Jesus.

What is it like to be more like Jesus?

The key to being Jesus like is humility.  Jesus gave up all of his God privileges and power to become human to be obedient to His Father in heaven and give his life in the ultimate show of love for you and me.

Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Phil 2:7-8

Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. 13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

14 Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. Phil 2:12-15

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you so much for loving me.  Thank you for sending Jesus to change me with His sacrificial love and show me how to live my life pleasing you.  I will work to honor you as God and get to know you better through Jesus.  I will live my life as an example and tell other people how much Jesus has changed me.

In Jesus Name Amen and Amen
