Put On The Lord Jesus

12

Good morning Beloved Peace be unto you in the name of our Lord Jesus Put on the Lord Jesus Romans 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. Beloved, a Christian is one believes in Jesus and walks in His ways, the very image of the Lord Jesus not one who proclaims to be one. It is not enough to believe in and accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you have to put on the Lord Jesus. Putting on the Lord Jesus entails: - Walking in His ways - Speaking like He speaks - Subjecting your actions to His ways - i.e making sure that every step you to take is same as Jesus would take if He was in your stead - Expressing His love - Hate what He hates - Obedience to Him - Doing good like He did - Being sacrificial like He was Daily, put on the Christ Jesus, let His life be reflected through you. How do you speak? How do you respond to situations? What do you do when others are in dire need of your help? What do you when one who is far younger than you gives you a resounding slap? What would you do when you are cheated? What do you engage in? Deliberate on these questions, answer them truthfully, and pattern your answers to what Christ Jesus would do, if it is not in alignment Beloved you need to make effective corrections now. Learn to forgive like He did, give, be compassionate, be slow to speak, swift to hear, slow to wrath, do good unto all men, speak as an oracle of GOD like a representative of Christ Jesus on the earth. Let men see you and testify of you that truly you have met Jesus Christ. Let no man see you and say "And he call himself a Christian, is he not the one gossiping about someone?" Ahhh, Beloved, let this not be heard or said concerning you. Beloved, be an expression of Christ Jesus in words and deeds and make not provision for the flesh - the flesh seek convenience, the flesh seeks the deceitful pleasure of this world, the flesh would curse those who steal from them, will not forgive, will live to please themselves hence dress as the world, the flesh will avenge himself, the flesh will try to prove a point to others and many more. All these are the workings of the flesh, don't give in to the flesh but instead put on the Lord Jesus. To put on the Lord Jesus, you must be with Him daily i.e you must be with the Word of GOD daily, you must humble yourself like He did and seek the Lord GOD for help in your daily walk with Him and all situations of life, you must intentionally flee from sin and worldly pleasures and finally you must know His ways, you can't put on the Lord Jesus or walk in His ways if you don't know His ways. Therefore diligent seek to know His ways and walk in them. Take note Beloved, only those who put on the Lord Jesus will enter through Heaven's gate into the celestial city. Surely, if you would daily put of the Lord Jesus, you will reign with Him in Heaven. The Grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. Amen. GOD bless you. #AcceptChrist #LiveforChrist
