#EVERYDAYJESUS is my buddy!

Standard

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what that good and perfect will of God is. – Romans 12: 2(NKJV).

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.- Romans 8: 29(NKJV).

The more time that I spend with a person, the more I talk like the person, if I agree and love this friend, I almost become like him or her. Friends influence each other. When I gist with my friends, listen to them talk, mix my ideas with theirs (if I admire these friends), I find myself using their words.

I have been influenced by my friends in the past and even now. In the process I picked up words like ‘scraggy’, ‘most def’, ‘no p’ and ‘oh my Gooid’ from a friend. And those phrases and word are still with me even when I am no longer close with this friend. I desire to be like Jesus. I love the Trinity and in order to be like Jesus I must be one with Him. If I spend more time with the Lord then I stand the chance to be like Him since I love and admire His nature.

I cannot become like someone that I do not know. If I have been spending more time with man than I have with Him then the reverse has to be the case if I want to be like Him. Following Him closely enables Him to rub off His nature on me.

Whenever I spend more time with people and friends, it could be that I am spending less time with God.

The Lord begot me to be like Him- Like Jesus.

While I am spending some time with Him, I am discovering the beauty of His person. My Jesus is holy, compassionate, passionate, and without sin. My Jesus is bold; He knew who He was while on earth. He is merciful, kind and loving. He is gentle and patient; He puts up with my childishness and mistakes. There is something about Him. His words are gracious; they do not hurt or tear down. They build up. He never gets angry; His temper is checked. He tells people the truth but when they resist the truth, He just lets them be.

My Jesus has authority and power. Demons tremble at His presence and He rules over them. He is only harsh to evil spirits and not to human beings. My Jesus enjoys the secret place a lot; He retires to a solitary place to commune with our Father.

I could never forget the gentleness of the voice of my Jesus. I could never forget those times He made me shed sweet tears by saying very sweet things to me. I could never forget the sound of His sweet voice to my ears- that very gentle voice. I remember that day I was starving of His Word yet could not feed. He spoke to me in what seemed like a trance or sleep (I cannot tell) that I had not eaten and that I should eat- I sure was famished. Unbelief and doubt was having a better part of me that I was too weak to even eat of His bread- Thank God I am feeding and alive and could never be robbed by the devil again. I could never forget that day.

He always hears me and listens to me. Some time ago, I was so broke yet I ordered some books by faith telling the seller that my father was behind my order and would send the money to me. The books arrived but the money hadn’t come. I was getting uneasy but I still believed God for a miracle. No money came. I told Him to prove to me that I was really His child who was confidently depending on Him and that I was giving some days to do that or I would fend for myself. He ignored both I and my threat. I went to church one of those days after the time that I gave Him elapsed and I wept the whole time. While coming home I told Him amidst tears that I was sad and that He has refused to wipe my tears. I told Him to wipe my tears and He heard me. Instantly the tears dried up and I could not cry again even when I wanted to. I could go on and on to recount how he takes note of me. I wonder how He listens to everybody’s prayers all at the same time. He is inexhaustible.

My Jesus is mysterious, He always spoke in parables. The kingdom of God was His message. He is love personified; love sent Him to the cross. You could always see wisdom authority and charisma in His teachings.

You were taught, with regard to your former ways of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

–Ephesians 4: 22-24. (NIV).
