1 Corinthians 11:1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
When I became a committed Christian I wanted to be a good Christian and do all the right things all the time….but I found this hard to do. I was new at walking my Christian walk and hadn’t studied enough to get it right so I prayed and asked God to help me. The lord told me to put on Jesus glasses. He told me when I had trouble dealing with people or a situation to pretend or visualize myself putting on these special glasses that will enable me to see people or situations as Jesus would see it.
I tell you…this helped me so much. I don’t do this anymore and I know now that the Jesus glasses was the Holy Spirit moving in my mind and heart to do the right things. The Jesus glasses was a great tool that God used with me. Everybody has a different learning style and for me….I need pictures. This must be why God gives me visions.
These Jesus glasses remind me of the first scripture above. Paul told the people to imitate what he does which is how Jesus would act. Paul was truly wearing ….Jesus glasses.
In the second scripture…it tells us about the Holy Spirit who will help you with those Jesus glasses. He teaches and reminds us of how God would want us to act and be. Jesus did what God told Him to do and we should do the same.
Message for today: Whatever you have to do to follow Jesus example…do it. Pray, read your bible and…..put on your Jesus glasses….you’ll see things more clearly!
