For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. —Isaiah 55:7
God’s character is not our character; His thoughts are not our thoughts; and His ways are not our ways. But He has revealed Himself to us through His Son, Jesus Christ, who said, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John 14:9).
God not only revealed Himself to us through His Word, but through the life and ministry of Jesus, who was the Word of God incarnate (John 1:1). As we read His words and observe His life, the mind, heart, and ways of God are revealed to us.
Follow Jesus, and let Him lead you to the Father. Let His Spirit guide and direct you into all truth. Listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd. Let the life of Jesus flow through you by the Spirit. As you study and meditate on the life and ministry of Jesus in the Gospels, you will have a more intimate relationship with Him.
Jesus, I want to be like You. I want to live and minister in
every way, every day, just like You. Jesus,
teach me to live for You. Amen.
