More About Jesus!

I pray that God will be kind to you and will let you live in perfect peace! May you keep learning more and more about God and our Lord Jesus.  We have everything we need to live a life that pleases God. It was all given to us by God's own power, when we learned that he had invited us to share in his wonderful goodness.   God made great and marvelous promises, so that his nature would become part of us. Then we could escape our evil desires and the corrupt influences of this world.

2 Peter 1: 2 - 4

When I was a child, sometimes an adult would ask me a rather annoying question.  The question would come after I got home from school and it was direct and simple.  It was this: “What did you learn in school today?”  There was never a good answer for that question from my perspective as a child.  I suppose I learned new things every day, but it was difficult to say what they were.

God wants you to learn more and more about Him and about Jesus Christ, every day!  And I think He frequently asks us the question: “What have you learned about Jesus?”  When the Spirit leads us into difficult and trying situations, He is wanting to know if we have learned how Jesus would respond, if He were in the same set of circumstances.  

You see, there is a big difference in answering the question of what you have learned about Jesus with your mouth, and in answering that question with your actions and your life!  

How do you learn more about God and about Jesus?  The first place to find out more about Jesus is the Bible.  The story of His life on this earth tells us many things about Him.  Another way to learn about Jesus is to see how He works in the lives of other believers!  That is one really good reason for regular fellowship with other Christians.  And of course, you learn about God and about Jesus as you spend time in prayer!  So whatever you do today, also make it your goal to learn more about the Lord!  

“Lord Jesus, I want to know more about You today, and tomorrow and every day of my life.  May You be praised forever.  Amen.”
