A part of Jesus’ life was living an ordinary life among his fellow Jews when the land of Israel was included in the Roman Empire boundaries. For three-and-a-half years, Jesus continually preached and performed miracles until his crucifixion by the Romans, at the insistence of the Jewish Authorities. However, his life didn’t end when he died on the cross, because he was resurrected by God to be present with us forever.
Jesus is God incarnate. Let’s learn to continually live with his practical teachings that can serve as a light to keep us guided when life throws us curveballs.
Jesus is the best example of how love should be defined—a kind of love that we can’t find in someone else’s love. He was present and attentive, compassionate and caring and ready to help. No one in this world could match the vastness of his love.
Jesus commanded us to Love one another as I have loved you (John 13:34). He also said Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. (Matthew 5:43). It is difficult to love someone you hate, but if you have a revelation of how much God loves you, then you can learn to love and forgive people who have wronged you.
A relationship with God.
You can establishing a deep relationship with God and Jesus, by taking time to pray and connect with them. One thing that hinders our relationship with God is thinking that God is mad at us or is condemning us for our sins. God is ever forgiving as shown in the fact that Jesus came for sinners and not for the righteous (Luke 5:32). Rejoice! Read God’s Word and pray for a deeper revelation of God’s love for you!
Oftentimes when we’re into the thick of it, we get so overwhelmed with the situation we’re stuck in that we forget to trust God. Remember God’s promise to keep you at peace and guarded under the wings of God (Psalm 91:4). It may be hard and tempting not to worry at times but God is a mover of mountains (Matthew 17:20). Learn to count the joys in every battle because that’s where God will be.
Don’t tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how big your God is.
