Daily Devotion (July 11, 2024)

1 Peter 2:21 (NKJV)
21For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:

John 14:12 (NKJV)
12“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

Philippians 2:3–5 (NKJV)
3Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
4Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
5Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,

1 Peter 4:1–2 (NKJV)
1Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
2that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

What would Jesus do?

The Bible, the Gospels show what Jesus would do. He did not focus on Himself but on others. Jesus did nothing that would dishonor God. All His actions were aimed at bringing glory to His Father.

We are to follow the example of Jesus. We are to have the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5).

Our life on earth is temporary. Make the most of it. Follow in the footsteps of Jessus.
