Divine demonstrations

In the Bible Jesus said to His Father, “As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” (John 17:18)

And to His disciples He said: “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21)

And John wrote, “Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. (1 John 2:6)

“Okay, that all sounds good. But if I really want to live like Jesus, what does that actually mean? How can I live like Him within the realities of my everyday life?”

Valid question!

When Jesus told Peter and others, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men,” I don’t think He was only talking about the physical action of walking the roads with Him, sleeping where He slept and eating where He ate. Jesus wanted His disciples to understand the principles He was teaching through His words and actions, and to apply them to their daily lives. He wants us to do the same. He wants us to do our best to put what He has taught us into practice in our everyday lives as we “go into the world” and share the good news with everyone He shows us to. (Mark 16:15)

The One who turned darkness into light and through death and resurrection brought life, has lived the example that He calls us to live. We don’t have to be great in ourselves. As we look to Him, the miracle of His power comes simply by allowing His Spirit to permeate whatever we do.


Here is what the Bible says on this subject.

I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. (John 13:15)

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. (John 15:4)

Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. (1 John 3:24)

In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. (1 John 4:17)

If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. (John 15:10)
