Simply Like Jesus – Each day Devotionals by Ideas about God

“Oh, enlarge the Lord with me” Psalm 34:3

We now have a brand new grandson. He was born six weeks early and gave us a little bit of a scare. We have been packed and able to go to a convention in balmy Florida, however then, with one telephone name in the course of the night time, our plans modified. We repacked, modified our flights and flew to very chilly Fort McMurray in northern Alberta. Our daughter-in-law was in labor and the newborn was in bother.

Nevertheless, as quickly as we walked into the airport terminal and noticed our son, we knew all was effectively. The child had arrived at midday, and each he and mom have been doing effectively. Reward the Lord!

We drove straight to the hospital to see mom and grandson. We gazed on the child for a very long time. There’s something about infants that softens an individual’s coronary heart and makes me all tender and heat inside.

And naturally we checked him out. Whom did he seem like?  His darkish complexion and hair resembled his dad, however his facial options have been extra like his mother. Sure, he seemed like his mother and father. He was their baby.

You recognize, we’re the youngsters of God. Who can we seem like? Can folks see Jesus in us? Do you spend sufficient time with Him, so that you tackle His traits and mannerisms? We’re to mirror Jesus, like a mirror. Can we enlarge Him and make Him appear greater? Most individuals we meet have a small view of Jesus. Does their view of Jesus change once they have been with us?

In his e book, Simply Like Jesus, Max Lucado states,

God loves you simply the best way you’re. However he refuses to depart you there. He needs you to have a coronary heart like his. He needs you to be identical to Jesus.”

Oswald Chambers writes in his devotional e book, My Utmost for His Highest,

The one and solely attribute of the Holy Ghost in a person is a robust household resemblance to Jesus Christ, and the liberty from the whole lot not like Him.”

Are we ready to permit the Holy Spirit to alter us so we’re identical to Jesus? Let’s do it!

Father, thank You for loving us simply the best way we’re. Thank You for loving us sufficient to alter us into the likeness of Your Son. Right here we’re Lord; change us! Amen.
