Being Like Jesus

Very often we distance ourselves from Jesus. We say, "What Jesus knew we cannot know, and what Jesus did we cannot do." But Jesus never puts any distance between himself and us. He says: "I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learnt from my Father" (John 15:15) and "In all truth I tell you, whoever believes in me will perform the same works as I do myself, and will perform even greater works" (John 14:12).

Indeed, we are called to know what Jesus knew and do what Jesus did. Do we really want that, or do we prefer to keep Jesus at arms' length?

You, Maria Hii and Clive K J Goh like this.

Clive K J Goh Christian are disciples of Christ. If our master is an architect, we cannot be saying we only learned how to cook from master. Or my master can build/draw but I cannot.

Michael Hii Faith Au, Some people want to be CLOSE to Jesus, but not TOO CLOSE !

Clive K J Goh Yes Mike, the key is not want to be God (think, Lucifer). He show us to love one another, kin

Clive K J Goh He show us, love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, self-control, faithfulness, goodness and patience. (9 fruits)

Clive K J Goh I mean Jesus shown us the 9 fruits and 9 gifts, we should also produce the 9 fruits and gifts too. It can be guided and develop over time.
