Do you guys know Nike shoes? Have you ever seen the jumping man picture with it? Maybe your dad has told you about Michael Jordan? Maybe you have seen the movie Space Jam? Well, maybe you don’t know him, but he was the best basketball player a few years back (some say he’s the best of all time, even today). Besides making Space Jam, he made TONS of commercials, one of the most famous was for Gatorade, and the song said “If I could be like Mike”. Want to be like Michael Jordan? Just drink Gatorade, easy.
The last on our list of purpose to live for Christ is to become more like Christ. How do we do that when Christ was perfect? We don’t try to be perfect, in fact, one of his characteristics was that he was humble and not proud at all. Start with being humble. What else? Christ was a servant–he served all people. Be like Jesus in his love.
18 And our faces are not covered. We all show the Lord’s glory, and we are being changed to be like him. This change in us brings more and more glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (ERV)
You are God’s dear children, so try to be like him. 2 Live a life of love. Love others just as Christ loved us.
Ephesians 5:1-2 (ERV)
Humbleness. Servanthood. Love. That’s a good place to start.
Dear Jesus, teach me how to be more like you. I am proud, forgive me. Show me how to be humble, to be loving and give me opportunities to be a servant. Amen.
