I love the strength of Jesus because He is focused on loving His Father and is totally selfless. He knows why He was sent and that this world was not His place to live. It is the same for us, we are to love God and be strong in the Lord so we can be home some day. We must learn and grow to live like Christ, who never thought of Himself.
I love how Jesus explains to us what we need to do in John 14:15-17 “If you love Me, obey my commandments. (Show your love by choosing life) and I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate, who will never leave you. (That is what makes you feel in your heart what is right and true.) He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it isn’t looking for Him and doesn’t recognize Him. But you know Him, because He lives with you know and later will be in you.”
They had Jesus alive and could learn and grow through Him, now we who are in Christ have the Holy Spirit and God’s word to keep us focused and sure of our eternal life.
John 15:4 says “Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me.”
What keeps you from reading and learning and asking Christ in every day? Never think you can do it on your own fill yourself daily so the ruler of this world will have no power over you. Amen
