Jesus’ character and the way he lived his life is filled with good examples of ways we can copy him!
He had a peaceful nature. John (14:27 NIV) records him saying, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you…Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
He studied and memorized the scriptures. Reading our Bibles and trying to remember our favorite Scriptures is a wonderful way to copy Jesus and please God.
He had complete trust in God at all times, just as we should have. Proverbs (3:5) (Christian Standard Bible) says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding;”
Jesus He helped others by performing incredible miracles with his power. Although WE can’t perform miracles like Jesus, we can volunteer to help others using the talents we DO have. Who can you help today?
Satan tried to tempt him three times. Matthew says, (4:10 English Standard Version) “Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’” Jesus didn’t give Satan any room to continue tempting him to do evil and neither should we. James (4:7 KJV) says, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you!”
Lastly, he obeyed God in everything he did. We should have this same daily obedience towards our Heavenly Father. Micah (6:8 NAS) says, “He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you, But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?”
So, how can we be more like Jesus? We can do our best to live peacefully with others, study the scriptures, be gentle and humble, trust God, help others, resist Satan’s attacks, and always obey God.
