January 14 – Make Me Like You
You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands.
P S A LM 1 1 9 : 7 3
Jesus celebrates when you follow him. In fact, it’s his greatest joy. He came to this earth so that you could hear what he says and see what he does. He spoke with power so that you could see he is the source of all truth. He healed people so that you could know he is a God of restoration and love. He died on the cross so that you could have your sins forgiven and have a relationship with God. He gave you his Spirit so that you could be renewed every day and change this world with his authority. And he called you to follow in his steps, to walk in his ways, and to encourage others to become his followers too.
Heaven rejoices when you begin to look like Jesus in the way you live your life. This is God’s original intent: making humans in his image, to be close to him in every moment. If you want to make a true difference in this world, one that matters forever, then today is a day to embrace God’s recreating work in your own life.
Pray for the Day:
Jesus, teach me to follow you in the little things of my life so that I can be entrusted to follow you in the big things too. Change me so that I can change the world for you. Amen.
