Today’s Sabbath Message / “Do You Want To Be Like Jesus?”

crucified with Christ sunset

People say that they want to be like Jesus. I am not trying to call anyone a liar but I don’t believe them.

Jesus didn’t make getting wealthy a part of his mission and message. (This totally flies in the face of prosperity gospel preachers and seed-faith sowers.)

Jesus never violated the Seventh-Day Sabbath nor changed it to Sunday.

Jesus never celebrated his birthday or commanded that His earthly birth be celebrated or remembered.

Jesus never participated in a pagan festival nor did he call any holy. 

Jesus never sought after credentials, accolades, church approval, social fame, celebrity, political power, glory, honor or prestige. (Lord have mercy on us for the things we have in the pulpit these days.)

To the contrary, Jesus gave up His Throne and His Glory to save us. He divested and emptied himself of His Heavenly and Divine Majesty in order to save a wretch like me. Christ divested Himself of His Glory and humbled Himself in order to obey The Father’s Will.  He remained obedient even unto death.

Do You Still Want To Be Like Jesus?

If we want to be like Jesus, then we should be willing to divest ourselves of our own rights and property and privileges and honor and power and money and invest ourselves with the mind of Christ and into the lives of others – obeying the Father’s Will even unto a poor man’s death.

Let those who have ears to hear, hear The Word of God!

Do you want to be like Jesus?
