A Closer Walk with Jesus!!

“We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did”. I John 2: 3 – 6.

Everybody's desire is to live a godly life in Christ. To live a desired life for God it cannot be accomplished by our own means. We need to Walk Closer with Jesus. The Apostle John who wrote this Gospel enlightens that walk with GOD should reflect in our lives as we begin to live and walk in the light of his love.

"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” I John 3:16....Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. Just wanted to post some questions here to analyze ourselves. Self Assessment is indeed necessary not only for our professional life but our spiritual life too. Do we really love our fellow brothers/sisters with the same love how Jesus shows for them? Are we really obeying God’s commands in all our ways of life or are we holding anything just to fulfill our own desires? Are we here to please God or please people? We may even be doing the ministry of GOD but GOD looks for the obeying heart which HE will be truly delighted. Let us live a life which Our GOD should be delighted. We are here and chosen to please GOD and to fulfill the will of GOD in our lives!
Let’s have the thirst to impart the nature of Jesus life. He who does not do what he commands is not a true person to GOD. We should obey the word of God as Noah obeyed, as Abraham obeyed.

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”- 1 Peter 2:9

Have a Blessed Day!!
In Christ alone

  1. Looks like our blogs are very similar in content and theme. Walking with Christ also means picking up ones own cross and following Him, is it not?
