9. God Provided Us an Example to Live by in Jesus
Jesus walked the earth with us to show us how to live. He gave us a perfect example of how to walk in love, forgiveness, and peace. He took away the strict rules and replaced them with boundaries instead. Boundaries to keep us safe not to hold us back. A child does best under the supervision of his parents. I do best under the supervision of my heavenly Father. He gladly provides this guidance and care. Write down some of the lessons that Jesus has shown you as you’ve walked through this life.
10. God Has Provided Us an Advocate, the Holy Spirit
When Jesus had to return to heaven, He sent the Holy Spirit to live within us after we believe in Christ. This Spirit shows us when we do something wrong. He shows us how to live righteously. He guides and protects and holds us safe. God provided a Helper to be with us always. Remember all of the ways that you’ve been comforted in this life.
God provided a way, a truth, and a life for us. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). Come to Him. Believe in Him. He will gladly take all of your heavy burdens and carry them for you. It’s the only decision in life that you’re guaranteed to never regret. You will still have to walk through life’s trials but He will help you and walk through them with you. He has overcome the world. Don’t you want to be on His side?
Pray with me:
Dear Lord God, remove the veil from my eyes so that I can see Your truth clearly. Open my eyes to the abundance of grace and mercy that are all around me. Come into my heart and show me how to really live. Help me to stop living for myself and sin. Help me to live for You and bring glory to You. Teach me how to produce this kind of fruit in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. I want to live this way in order to glorify You and thank You with my life. Loving You and loving my neighbors is what it’s all about. In Jesus’s Name, Amen.
