Live Like Jesus

Blank 1200 x 374 (9).png

If you look at the life of Jesus, the example you see is straight forward. Jesus listened to His Father and did only what the Father told Him to do. Jesus lived His life in complete obedience to His Father. He lived and worked as a carpenter because that is where the Father put Him, and He was going to stay there until the Father told Him otherwise. Jesus then started His ministry at a wedding because they had run out of wine. That was the time that the Father had planned, but we’re not sure Jesus knew it until that moment. Jesus also fasted for 40 days in the wilderness because the Spirit led Him to do so. Jesus often withdrew to pray and continued to get direction from His Father because every move He made was in surrender to His Father’s will. He lived a life that was connected to His Father as He was part of the vine. That is why separation was so terrible when Jesus was on the cross since He had never been separated from the Father until then.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

— John 15:5

In our lives, we are also meant to live connected to the Father. As we look to the simple example of Jesus, we see a pattern we can follow. Listen to the Father and obey His voice. Living as His children is just that simple. Things get complicated when we, as born again believers, try to live life separated from the Father. When we are born again, our lives are forever connected to the Father through Jesus, our life source. We became part of the living vine called the body of Christ. If we cut ourselves off from that vine, we will wither and eventually die.

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

— John 14:6

If we do not abide in God, we have no life in us. Our life priority cannot be anything but abiding in and obeying God. In this life, there are many things that could cause us to worry, but we don’t need to worry about anything. We just need to obey because God will take care of the rest. No matter what we are called to do for Jesus, whether a missionary in the Middle East, a banker, or a stay at home mom, we all can live like Jesus if we follow His example and simply abide in God and obey.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
