To Live A Christ Kind Of Life

To live a Christ kind of life we must know what the scriptures say about His life. For who are we as mere sinners that we are unable to identify what was written in the scriptures? For even Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior quoted scripture. When in the wilderness for 40 days and nights Satan tried to tempt (test) Jesus.
The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’ ” (‭Luke‬ ‭4‬:‭3-4‬ NIV) Jesus quoted (Deuteronomy 8:3)
The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’ ” (‭Luke‬ ‭4‬:‭5-8‬ NIV) Jesus quoted (Deuteronomy 6:13)
The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ ” When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time. (‭Luke‬ ‭4‬:‭9-13‬ NIV) Satan quoted (Psalms 91:11-12), Jesus quoted (Deuteronomy 6:16)
You see the devil also know scripture as well. So we need to “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” (‭Ephesians‬ ‭6‬:‭11‬ NIV) Paul also tells us that “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren”. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭29‬ NKJV) After being reborn in Christ we were meant to live life like Christ, but how can we when we don’t no how Christ lived? Think about that!!!

My Declaration For 2015

If you ask 9 out of 10 people what are some of the things that they do for their husband,wife,father,mother,sister or brother. Without hesitation they will be able to point out those things to you. But if you were to ask them “What are some of the things that they don’t do for them?” The answer to that question won’t come so quickly. And this is my push for 2015 that God may grant us a generation who will rather think about the things that they don’t do, instead of the things that they do for people in their lives. In the bible Paul says If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭11‬:‭30‬ NIV) So ask yourself the question what do I get out of boasting about what I have done for somebody when it’s God that allowed me to do those things In the first place?.. No sir if I will boast about anything in 2015 it’s about my weakness (the things that I don’t do) in hopes to make improvements in those areas so that I may have Life more abundantly. (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ NKJV) in coordinates with the scriptures.
Amen God Bless
