Living Like Jesus In 2013

Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. 1 John 2:6 NLT

How did Jesus live each day? Is it really possible for us to live as He lived? Here are five things to consider:

The first is His dependency.

So Jesus answered them by saying, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the Son is able to do nothing of Himself (of His own accord); but He is able to do only what He sees the Father doing, for whatever the Father does is what the Son does in the same way. John 5:19 AMP

Jesus lived each day dependent upon His Father. He did not live independently, think independently, or act independently of His Father. He spoke what His Father wanted Him to say and He did what His Father wanted Him to do. He received from His Father all He needed for each day.

I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. John 15:5 AMP

We can also live each day in complete dependency upon the Lord. He is our strength, our life, our sufficiency, and He is the source of all we need.

The second is His faithfulness.

Think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest.For He was faithful to God, who appointed Him. Hebrews 3:1-2 NLT

Jesus lived each day in faithfulness to what His Father called Him to do. Jesus stayed true to His Father’s plan and will for His life. He didn’t drift away from it or follow it half-heartedly.

‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Matthew 25:23 NKJV

As followers of Jesus Christ we can be faithful to what God has called us to do and do His will whole-heartedly.

The third is His obedience.

“Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Luke 22:42 NKJV

Jesus lived each day in obedience to His Father’s will. Jesus not only obeyed His Father, but He obeyed Him without delay. He obeyed willingly and joyfully.

So you must live as God’s obedient children. 1 Peter 1:14 NLT

Obedience to God’s will in our lives is a choice we can make each day. As God’s children, He trains us to be obedient because He knows what is best for us. It is through our obedience that we know the meaning of a joy-filled heart and a meaningful life.

The fourth thing is His motivation.

And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him. John 8:29 NKJV

The reason Jesus lived the way He did was because He wanted to fully glorify and please His Father. He lived to please only His Father and have His approval.

Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 2 Corinthians 5:9 NKJV

The motivation of our hearts should be to please Him. There is nothing higher than that. When we live to do what is well pleasing in His sight we will know His smile of approval upon our lives.

The fifth thing is His empowering.

Then Jesus returned to Galilee, filled with the Holy Spirit’s power.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, for He has anointed Me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.” Luke 4:14, 18 NLT

Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit.   Jesus lived each day in the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit. All that He did in His public ministry was under the anointing and empowering of the Holy Spirit.

I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Ezekiel 36:27 NKJV

Be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 KJV

Since His ascension to the right hand of the Father, Jesus has made it possible for each of us to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to have His power in our lives. It is by the Holy Spirit’s presence, fullness, and power that we can walk as Jesus walked and live as Jesus lived. Ask Him now to fill you, empower you, and lead you step by step into His plan and purpose for you in 2013.

    How excellent! Focusing on Jesus life answers the profound question, “How then shall we live?”. Thank you for the insightful instruction complete with Scripture references.

    • GAIL TAYLOR January 9, 2013 at 4:08 AM #

      Every time we turn from our flesh emotions (which is the veil) that veil that keeps us from seeing the truth.
      Every time we overcome our self, the flesh;ego/pride/jealousy/envy/lust/anger/fear, fear is the hardest of all to overcome and as we die daily to these natures by overcoming them. We make the choice to put on the nature of Christ. Peace/love/Joy, long suffering, patience, all the fruits of the spirit. Takes time,this doesn’t happen overnight, takes a life time of changing our minds daily as we put on the mind of Christ. Phl 2:5 ¶Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: WE are the only ones that can control our minds and it all begins there. Changing the mind.
      Little by little, line upon line, as we understand the power to choose life. God life or flesh life. Each time we change our thoughts from flesh to Spirit, we are changed in a twinkling of an eye..not all at once but little by little we are changing our nature to the nature of God. Don’t give up, we fall but we get up and we are not failures unless we quit! So always get up and run again and again..till one day we have changed and we are like him. The Holy Spirit is one with God and in us if we listen and obey we will convert our mind and body’s. WE can change. REV. Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

  9. Laura Sisney January 6, 2013 at 8:32 AM #

    I love this. It is true that outside of having that close relationship with Jesus, we can do nothing, but His love and grace, through The Holy Spirit, empowers us when we are connected to The Vine. Thank you once again for your insight.

  14. trisha January 6, 2013 at 9:04 AM #

    OBEDIENCE is the key…then the blessings with flow!!!!!!!
    THANK YOU, HOLY SPIRIT, for helping me to BE more like Jesus!!!!!!!

    • Judy Christensen January 6, 2013 at 3:39 PM #

      obedience is the key like you say obey the 10 commandments don’t go astray always try to help your fellow man. physically or prayer.

      • June January 7, 2013 at 10:57 PM #

        Good word , it was great teaching pray that I will be more like Jesus!

    • Meg January 6, 2013 at 9:11 PM #

      Jesus was obedient to the Father, and obedience to the Father does bring about a blessing, however I wanted to share something that the Lord shared with me a couple years ago on this subject. He said that the real “key” is BELIEVING. Obedience will not flow until we truly believe whatever it is that God is instructing us to do. Sometimes God will test our obedience and ask that we do something without understanding, but I believe most of the time we cannot obey an instruction from God until we truly believe Him first. This is what He said to me: “The kingdom of Heaven is with you, in you, upon you, and around you. Do not fear. I am the hedge around you, the voice inside you and the love that keeps you. Take another step. Take another step of faith. Look up. Look around, look within. I AM is with you. I am keeping you. I am holding you. I am loving you forever. You must obey to see my victory, but obedience itself is not the key. Believing Me is the key to victory and success. Believing is what leads to your obedience. You cannot obey Me if you do not believe Me. Believe Me and you will see the obedience follow and then comes the victory.” Not sure who this may be important for but I wanted to be “obedient” to share it.:-)

      • Vincent January 7, 2013 at 1:53 AM #

        Thank you Meg. Those encouraging words can only come from the Father of love. In a world filled with hate and violence, every reader should seek to find out the secrete for living- hearing him, believing him and obeying him. We need faith to please him. Shalom!

      • Brandy Mason January 7, 2013 at 12:25 PM #

        Beautifully stated! That is exactly how I worship.

      • Wanda Hayter January 7, 2013 at 2:50 PM #

        Thank You so much. God Bless Always … awaiting His Return

      • Wilma January 7, 2013 at 3:01 PM #

        “The kingdom of Heaven is with you, in you, upon you, and around you. Do not fear. I am the hedge around you, the voice inside you and the love that keeps you. Take another step. Take another step of faith. Look up. Look around, look within. I AM is with you. I am keeping you. I am holding you. I am loving you forever.

        Beautiful words that spoke to my heart. I lost my husband to cancer 18 days ago after being happily married for 49 years, 8 months and 1 day. Thank you.

        • Olufunke January 8, 2013 at 1:43 AM #

          Dear Wilma,
          your Husband is not lost but has gone to wait for you in heaven.May God Almighty console and comfort you in Jesus Name. Amen.

        • Carole January 8, 2013 at 6:32 AM #

          Wilma, I am sorry for the loss of your precious husband. Praying The Father’s Presence will fill every void and do mighty things for you and through…and us all. Bless you, in Yeshua’s name!

        • Alias M.Chacko, January 8, 2013 at 7:07 AM #

        Percious! And powerful! Thank you Meg for sharing this

      • Angela Joy G. January 9, 2013 at 7:06 PM #

        Thank you Meg! I don’t read blogs/posts very often but just read yours today. It is very insightful and so encouraging!!! And since faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God, the more time we spend listening, reading, studying, memorizing, meditating on God’s Word, and obeying, the more faith will grow and become stronger in our lives, producing more devotion and obedience to the Father. Isn’t it encouraging that the Lord always gives us what we need! Living Water! Bread of LIfe! And His Spirit to guide us in His truth! And it is all for His glory!!! And produces in us true and lasting joy. Have a blessed 2013! Your sister, Angela

        OUR first work as Christians is to pray in GOD’S presence with the confidence that the HOLY SPIRIT will do a good work in us and for others! Being a prayer warrior is a daily way to abide in HIM! And I pray now for YOU dear Judy!

    • HisChild January 6, 2013 at 9:11 PM #

      Sanjeeva & Judy, thank you for asking for prayer. May HE hear and answer you as you seek after HIM. It is good to pray for one another and though I do not know you, He certainly does and I look forward to that day when all The family of G-d will meet face-to-face and celebrate together. Until then, may the Holy Spirit fill us with love to follow the Father, depend on Him, obey Him and serve Him faithfully through Jesus.

    • Alphonsa Doss January 11, 2013 at 12:44 PM #

      Sanjeeva Rao
      We will pray for you and your dear family…I am happy to know you want to follow Jesus Christ…to even say Jesus is Lord we need the Holy Spirit….Read the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew …and you will come to know what a follower of Jesus is called to believe and be….God bless you and your family for seeking the Truth…

  18. Patti January 6, 2013 at 9:17 AM #

    Your insight into the Scriptures is always inspirational, informative, and just a real joy to read. “Thank-you” for being Yeshua/Jesus’ messenger, sharing His “Light unto our paths” for so many in the darkened world in which we now live.

  28. Itala Simone January 6, 2013 at 12:09 PM #

    I’m Italian and it’s nice to share with you some comments regarding our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Word: yes, to be a faithful servant we must be dependent, faithful, obedient to Him and our power is the daily prayer which can enforce our spirit. God bless you all.

  29. Charles January 6, 2013 at 12:26 PM #

    Such Truth resonates with my spirit, like fire shut up in my bones!

  30. Jan January 6, 2013 at 12:41 PM #

    This is a wonderful outline for living as a follower of Jesus. I love that you give an easy “handle” (the five words dependency, faithfulness, obedience, motivation, and empowering) to help me remember. Thank you.

  31. Faye January 6, 2013 at 1:04 PM #

    A much needed message to help us remember to live like Jesus in the insecure year ahead. Thank you for your insight.

  32. Rosa January 6, 2013 at 1:09 PM #

  33. Terry & Pat Lampel January 6, 2013 at 1:49 PM #

    Now that’s getting to the essence of how we live our lives–thank you Roy! Remininiscent of Francis & Edith Schaeffer’s writings.

  34. Mary January 6, 2013 at 2:02 PM #

    So true and ecouraging! May the Lord help me to live like Him in 2013.

  35. Valerie January 6, 2013 at 2:18 PM #

    Thanks Very useful,will do my best to follow

  36. Mary Ellen January 6, 2013 at 2:36 PM #

    Forgetting what we have and what we want and living like Jesus is the only way. God said “this is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him.” So if we listen to Jesus as he listened to His Father we can be like him. The journey we are on is rough but following the way of Jesus will bring us to a everlasting life filled with joy.

  37. Dawn January 6, 2013 at 3:23 PM #

    Thank you! I needed to be reminded of His empowerment while I face some big decisions in 2013.

  38. Pastor Dean Foster January 6, 2013 at 4:15 PM #

    Very true, and if this is passed to everyone we come in contact with we will really have a more peaceful and Happy New Year – 2013.
    May God bless every reader who takes this to heart.
    Pastor Dean

    • Tamatha Knauber December 5, 2013 at 10:26 AM #

      AMEN! To that. As Christians that is what we are called to do in this world pass on his Word to ALL! Just imagine what kind of a world we all would live in if such a thing were possible. It would truly be heaven on earth! God Bless you Pastor Dean and all the other readers who come in contact with this message. May it reside deep within each other soul’s longer one another for a more deep, more intimate relationship with the Maker, the Creator, the Almighty, the Lord (who reigns in the heavens and in the earth). May peace reign through the new year. God Bless All!

I have been blessed reading about the five principles we should follow to live like Jesus in 2013 and always. My prayer is to depend, be faithful, obedient, motivated and be empowered/anointied by God. Help me each day Lord to live like Jesus, AMEN!

  51. Marie from BERMUDA! January 7, 2013 at 7:17 AM #

    GOD’S blessings and a Happy New 2013 to all, as I sit here and ponder on these 5 words I can truly say that it doesn’t take much to follow them. We live in a busy world and I am sad to say that I am one of them that continually says “I don’t have the time”. I don’t want to make a resolution but lets call it my “goals”, it is to be more like JESUS. Take time out for my self, pray more, read the BIBLE and love like JESUS did. So simple to do but without JESUS I am nothing and can do nothing on my own. So please pray for me and this New Year that I can acconmplish my gosls. AMEN!!!

    • Cora January 14, 2013 at 10:46 AM #

    Dear Mr. Lessin, Thank you so much for this devotional. It is one I want to refer to frequently when thinking of how to walk as Jesus walked. I have often wondered just how to walk as He walked and found your writing to be very insightful and encouraging!! Thank you so much for your ministry. My family and I have been blessed through your writings in DaySpring cards for years. God bless you, your family, and your ministry abundantly. In Christ, Angela

    Thank you so much for sharing this devotional with me. I am so glad that I was able to read it and it has provided scriptures with it to support what our walk with God she actually be like…to be live like how Jesus Christ lived and empowered by His spirit to live a holy life.

    Very firm, strong, and comforting.

    Thank you Day Spring Family for such encouraging words of wisdom. I am so reminded of when Jesus was baptized, our Father looked upon Him and “said this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Jesus who now lives in us and through us, as we submit and follow Him we too can be well pleasing to our Heavenly Father. May this year be the best year ever in all you do. I am glad that I have joined with such a loving and kind group of Christians.

    Blessings to you always.

    God has so blessed you to reach out to us to be blessed, and I am grateful. At the crossroads of life, once again, I pray we sell our home soon, today would be okay, and be guided to a place where my ailing husband and two boys still struggling to soar in life, can gather to find peace, resolute to serve our best God given purpose. Thank you for this site. Thank you for serving God’s wisdom. Thank you for reminding us of His love. Thank you for the good you provide in these very difficult times in our nation.
