Live like Christ: 1 John 2:5-6

Pink Malva

But whoever obeys His Word has the love of God made perfect in him. This is the way to know if you belong to Christ. The one who says he belongs to Christ should live the same kind of life Christ lived.

1 John 2: 5-6 (NLV)

What was Christ’s like? He was humble, washing His disciple’s feet, He was compassionate to the sick, He was merciful to lepers, and He forgave the soldiers who crucified Him. Jesus taught that kindness and forgiveness are right, and hate and revenge are wrong. Jesus reached out loving all, including the lost, outcasts, sinners, and the sick. To live like Christ is not an easy task, but with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can be transformed into the likeness of Christ.

What change is needed in your life to help you live more like Jesus?

Prayer: Lord, guide us to live more Christ-like lives. Teach us to be full of grace, less judgemental, humble, forgiving, and to love one another. Like the malva blossoms radiate and glow in the sun, let us radiate goodness and the light of Jesus and His love. Lord, we give thanks and praise for Your grace and love for us. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen
