If you love me, you will do what I have said, and my Father will love you. I will also love you and show you what I am like.
What is Jesus like? How would you describe Him? And how do you know what Jesus is like? Are you just repeating something someone else told you or do you from personal experience?
Of course, the Bible tells us the story of Jesus and every follower of Jesus will want to know and meditate on every Word of Scripture. But how has Jesus shown you what He is like?
Remember that prayer is a conversation, not a presentation. When you "spend time" with Jesus you not only pour out your heart to Him, but Jesus shows you what He is like! It is an intimacy that cannot and perhaps should not be described and "shared" with others.
The pathway to knowing Jesus is not to understand what it means to know Him, but rather to simply love Him and obey His Word! Then you will experience the love of the Father and Jesus Himself will show you what He is like! Every moment of your day will be one of discovering how Jesus wants you to respond, act, speak and even think. With the Holy Spirit in your heart, Jesus is your constant companion.
"Lord Jesus, I want today to love You more and be more obedient to every Word that comes from You. Show me more of what You, Jesus are like. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
