Thinking and Acting Like Jesus (4)

Thinking and Acting Like Jesus (4)

“Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.”         Mt 11:29 TM

The relationship Jesus had with the Father is a prototype of the relationship He wants you to have with Him. Jesus was so intimate with the Father that He could say, “I am in the Father, and the Father in me” (Jn 14:11). Jesus was also intimately acquainted with the Holy Spirit. His first recorded sermon begins with: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me” (Lk 4:18 NAS). He was “led by the Spirit” (Mt 4:1 NIV) and “full of the Holy Spirit” (Lk 4:1 NIV). He returned from forty very tough days of being tempted by the Devil in the wilderness “in the power of the Spirit” (Lk 4:14 NIV). He was submitted to the Father and empowered by the Spirit. It was His habit to go to worship (See Lk 4:16). It was His practice to memorize Scripture (See Lk 4:4). Luke says Jesus “often slipped away to be alone so He could pray” (Lk 5:16 NCV). His times of prayer guided Him. He once returned from prayer and announced that it was time to move to another city (See Mk 1:38), and another time of prayer resulted in the selection of His disciples (See Lk 6:12-13). Jesus was led by an unseen hand. “The Son does whatever the Father does” (Jn 5:19 NCV). In the same chapter He stated, “I can do nothing alone. I judge [each situation] only the way I am told” (Jn 5:30 NCV). Today pray, “Father, keep me sharp, sensitive and surrendered to You in all things; not as a last resort but a first response. Take over. Jesus, live Your life through me!”
