Chuck Swindoll is broadcasting a series called Family Rules for “Little Children.”
He states,” When looking for a hero to follow choose Jesus.
Study his life…
His ways …. then go there.”
Here are a few simple rules for living.
“My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin.
But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father.
He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.
He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins
and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.”
If you mess up it’s good to have someone who’s got your back.
We all make some kind of a mess, but we have a Savior who’s hung on the cross for our sins.
“And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments.
If someone claims,
”I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments,
that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.”
The best proof that we know him is our obedience.
“But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him.
That is how we know we are living in him.
Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.”
Our actions really prove the truth.
Our obedience reveals our respect to the father.
So consider the words,”What would Jesus do.”
It will be well worth your soul.
Until next time, Pam
