One day a man was walking down the street, an old girlfriend came running up to him and said “My dear tizz I, tizz” I, but he answered back and said, but I am no longer I. That is the way it should be when people haven’t seen us for a while, they should think my he or she has truly changed, they don’t seem like the same person anymore, we should be getting more like Jesus every day. More KIND, and LOVING, HUMBLE, and ENCOURAGING. Jesus said, “And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” (John 8:29). “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48). Jesus knows that we will never be totally perfect and always be in the spirit, like He is in everything He does and says, but this is something we can strive and live for, not for self-righteous, but because we want to please the Lord and make him happy in all we say and do. “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13). “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63). “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3). “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” (Psalms 139:7). Jesus is always with us, he never leaves us or forsakes us, or sleeps. “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5). Do you hear the Lord’s conviction speaking to you? The Holy Spirit is given to those that obey God and the more we obey the Lord then the more of the Holy Spirit is poured out upon us “And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.”(Acts 5:32). Don’t be like those that harden their hearts. “while it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.” (Hebrews 3:15). “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:” (1Timothy 4:1-4). The more we listen to the Holy Spirit, the more like Jesus we will be, and the Lord can use us more and the happier we will be. “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Let Jesus renew you every day. “not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” (Titus 3:5). “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.” (Lamentations 3:22). Have Communion often. After all it’s the only tradition that Jesus commanded us to keep. “And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the New Testament in my Blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthians 11:24-25).


What if everybody tried to be like Jesus? Then we would have a little bit of Heaven right here. “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7). Claim his blood over you to receive his forgivness. It’s so exciting to think about the future the Lord has for us. “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
