The Light Daily Devotional – Looking unto Jesus
Focus: Looking unto Jesus
WORD FOR TODAY
Putting men in charge of the Lord’s work on earth is a huge risk on the Lord’s part. Making a man a living model is a sure way to suffer heartbreak and live a life full of disappointments!
“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” NHebrews 12KJV
A man, no matter how spiritual, is first and foremost a man before he is referred to as a man of God. Hence, when dealing with any man, regardless of who he is, the fact that he is not without weakness and can be influenced by sinful nature remains. Unfortunately, several men have sacrificed their reasonable service, mandate, and the essence of their existence on the altar of fleshly lust, and pride of life!
Consequently, don’t make men your models. A man is never greater than what he sees. You must always look to Jesus as your model for living. If you must follow a man, it must be Christ in him. There is no doubt in the fact that God is placing a watch over your life, and some people will see what you do as what is right. You must also walk in Christ’s footsteps to be an effective ambassador for Him.
+ Who is your model for living?
Prayer:Lord! I receive the grace to resemble Christ in his attributes in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: The way Christ lived is the perfect example of how we should live!
Have an impressive Wednesday!
