Be More Like Jesus
Know who Jesus is and what he did. Read the Bible to learn more about him. Acts 20:32 says that the Word of God is able to build you up.
Love Him. Radiate that love with others. Jesus said in John 13:34-35 that people would know us if we had the agape love of God and demonstrate it to the world. Have the right heart. Proverbs 4:23, “Above all things keep your heart for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and rely not on your own understanding.”
Care for other people. Treat others as you would like to be treated (Golden rule of Jesus in Matthew 7:12); think beyond yourself. Jesus forgave Peter even though Peter betrayed Jesus. Peter betrayed Jesus but Jesus would never betray Peter.
Be learned and wise. Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and favor with both God and Man (Luke 2:52).
Be humble. After Jesus washed His disciples feet, He said, “An example I have given you, that you should do likewise (John 13:15).
Deal with your pride and any boastfulness. Phil 2:5 says, “Let this humble mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus”.
Be prepared to say sorry when you get something wrong.
Be considerate of others in all that you do. I Corinthians 13:4 says that love is always patient and kind.
Watch your tone of voice, your style of language (don’t curse, blaspheme, etc.). Always speak kindly of others and try to see things from their perspective. Jesus on the Cross said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do (Luke 23:34).
