Live your life to glorify God and not to be recognized as a religious rogue – the Jews of the Jesus time. (Contd.)
Good morning and welcome to the dawn of a new day. It’s Tuesday!
Jesus Christ who is the essence of Christianity never lived to be perceived a religious leader.
He was busy with His assignment – about with His Father’s business.
He never pitch His tent with the Sadducees and the teachers of the law who were accustomed to finding faults, even in what He did and taught.
He always knew their thoughts and what they were about. – Mark 2:8
Thus, in Him were present the nine gifts of the Spirit in full, including that of discernment.
He is the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world. Also, He is the Lion of Judah who overthrew the seats and tables of those who abused the house of prayer and the word (the temple). – Matthew 21:12
He should be our perfect example.
He has not called us into religion, He came that we may have life and have it in full. – John 10:10b
John 8:12 KJV
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Jesus is the light of life.
When we walk with Him, He works for us.
When we live for Him, He lights our path.
The way to live an acceptable life before God is to live by Christ Jesus, not of works so that no man should boast but by resting on His finished works on the cross.
Have a blessed day.
