Instead of hating your enemies, you love them by praying for them.
Instead of living a life motivated by fear and greed, your life is energized by courage and a desire to help others.
Your words are radically different than that of the world’s. You speak hope when others expect defeat. Your words inspire, console and heal. Your conversation is beyond reproach. Your words are salted with grace.
Will you always live as I’ve stated here? If you do, please write to me because you will be the first perfect Jesus follower who has ever lived. The radical difference, however, is that when you mess up you go to Him in humble attitude and repentant heart.
When you wrong others, you seek their forgiveness. When your heart is hurt, you freely forgive. When you’ve done a wrong and can offer restitution, you do so.
You don’t knowingly cause others to stumble. You reflect to those who have fallen the grace and mercy that Jesus has given you.
Followers of Jesus, your life in Christ impacts more people than you realize. Don’t quit. Please. Keep looking to Jesus to become more and more like Him. The world needs you. We all need you.
Keep living in Him,
