LOOKING UNTO JESUS 📜
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 56 | FEBRUARY 25, 2021 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
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 is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)
Life is not designed to be lived any how. God has a standard and pattern for us to follow or imitate. This is not the standard of any ministry or minister. It is the standard of the Lord Jesus himself. Any life lived outside of this pattern is a lower life irrespective of how appealing it seems to the world. We may have role models and Fathers in the Faith but they are not the standard, Jesus Christ is!
We may receive inspiration from our leaders in the Faith but they shouldn't be the limit of our growth and attainment in spiritual things. One of the main reasons the Lord Jesus, the God incarnate, came into the world was to clearly show without any contradiction how the child of God ought to live here in the earth. He showed us how to relate with demons, shortage, nature, sickness, people and God. He is our Faith, the beginning and the ending of it.
Jesus Christ in his earth walk was the word made flesh (John 1:14). But he was not just the word, He was the living Word or the Word of God in manifestation. The Greek is logos. He was not just the written word in black and white. When studied and meditated upon, the logos of God becomes living in the reader. The logos forms the life and the love of God in the one who meditates on Him.
Hebrews 4:12-13 (KJV) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. The same Greek word used for the Lord Jesus in John 1:14 is used in this verse. This means to look unto Jesus is to set your gaze upon the revealed word of God. It should be the standard and pattern of your life. Keep looking and meditating on the Word of God till every Character and Power of the Lord Jesus is manifest in you!
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
The Lord Jesus is the standard and pattern of my life. I look and meditate on the written word until every character and power of the Lord is formed in me. I don't live any other way besides what the word reveals to me
