Take the First Step…
I want to help people who are followers of Jesus Christ to “Take the Next Step”. You have heard the phrase “WWJD”(or “What would Jesus Do?”).
I’d like to help us to move from asking a question to taking the next step and LLJD: ”Live Like Jesus Did”. This booklet will give you 10 steps in the journey to LLJD.
“Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.” (I John 2:6)
Could we really live life knowing what God’s will is? We can if we know God the Father like Jesus knows Him. We can learn how Jesus lived His life, and how we can be in that same “zone” He was in order to LLJD.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” (1 John 3:1-3, NIV)
Our self-concept and identity is an important part of how we see our lives. It also determines our behavior. Who you are determines, in large measure, what you do. Jesus said that “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he”. Understanding our identity is very important. If we are God’s children, then we should be like Him! .
The very first step in LLJD is “Knowing Whose You Are”
Key Question: Do you know God as your Heavenly Father? If so, you are His child. Therefore, you can LLJD because you have the same Father as Jesus did!
