Are You Walking the Jesus Walk?
We all say that we are Christians, but do we walk as Jesus does? I speak only for myself, but I am not satisfied with myself when I go back on my commitment to follow Jesus. There is a knawing discomfort in my stomach when I try to put on the “world” again. It just doesn’t fit right.
So, these are the questions I ask myself with one or two Bible Scriptures.
Or you can do your own search because these are just a few of hundreds.
6 Little Questions
1 Did I offer peace today?
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27 ESV
2 Did I bring a smile to someone’s face?
Job 29:24[God speaking to Job]
I smiled on them when they had no confidence, and the light of my face they did not cast down.
Job 29:24 ESV
3 Did I say words of healing?
1 Corinthians 12:8-9
8 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, 9 to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,
1 Corinthians 12:8-9 ESV
“6 Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? 7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? 8 Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Isaiah 58:6-8 ESV
4 Did I let go of my anger and resentment?
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin.
3 You withdrew all your wrath; you turned from your hot anger.
Psalm 85:2-3 ESV
5 Did I forgive?
14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Matthew 6:14-15 ESV
6 Did I love?
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
John 14:23 ESV
Ask yourself these real life questions if you are walking the Jesus walk. Answers are just between you, God, and the World that watches you.
Today, I leave you with Peace.
