As we know Jesus better, his divine power gives us everything we need for living a godly life. He has called us to receive his own glory and goodness! 2 Peter 1 v 3
It's exam time... you have a three-hour English exam tomorrow and you haven't actually got around to reading all the text yet. Of course you went through most of it in class, but you skipped the important lecture about the main characters of the book. You meant to get the notes, but you never actually got around to it. What do you do?
Here are your choices.
- Pray about it
- Read The Book
- Spend your time inventing a time machine in the hope that you can go back to that lecture, and any others you missed
- Doodle on your note pad for an hour and then go out with your mates
How you react depends on your personality, but there is really only one right thing to do, that is to read the book and try to understand the characters.
God has given us the Bible to guide us in how to live a godly life. We need to get to know the character of Jesus so we can begin to understand Him, to be able to become more like Him. The more we become like Him, the more we will reflect God's glory and goodness in the world around us.
How well do you know Jesus? How much do you reflect His passion and holiness to your friends? If you feel that you can't do it, you're not alone, the Holy Spirit will help you. Also be encouraged becuse God chose (called) you to reflect Jesus to your friends.
