“Anyone who is not a continual student of Jesus, and who nevertheless reads the great promises of the Bible as if they were for him or her, is like someone trying to cash a check on another person’s account. At best, it succeeds only sporadically. The effect of such continuous study under Jesus would naturally be that we learn how to do everything we do “in the name of the Lord Jesus”; that is, on his behalf or in his place; that is once again, as if he himself were doing it.”
This made me ask myself a couple questions.
Am I a student of Jesus? Am I learning to live and move in the world from him?
Do I do everything “in the name of the Lord Jesus”? Are my actions, thoughts, and words reflective of his?
I’d love to hear from you.
