Always


I want to be like

JESUS~

ALWAYS.

I want to

ALWAYS

Respond

in all circumstances

to all people

Like JESUS did~

"Your attitude should be the same as that of CHRIST JESUS: 


Who, being in very nature GOD,

Did not consider equality with GOD something to be grasped,

but made HIMSELF nothing, taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,

HE humbled Himself" (Philippians 2:8
 )

But I don't~

ALWAYS.

I want to

ALWAYS.

Obey

Like JESUS did~

“Although HE was a SON

HE learned obedience from what HE suffered and,

once made perfect, HE became the source of eternal salvation

for all who obey HIM.” (Hebrews 5:8)

But I don't~

ALWAYS

I want to always

Not Succumb to Temptation

Like JESUS did~

... but we have one who has been tempted in every way,

just as we are—yet was without sin...” Hebrews 4:15

But I don't~

ALWAYS.

I want to always

Love

Like JESUS did~

"love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (Matthew 5:44)

But I don't~

ALWAYS.

I want to

ALWAYS

See

Like JESUS did~

"...For the joy set before HIM.." (Hebrews 12:2).

JESUS never lost sight to where HE was headed~

to HIS real home

where HIS citizenship was.

HIS eyes focused on the unseen, with HIS heart fixed on His purpose~

HIS FATHER'S will.

JESUS was able to walk the talk, because HIS eyes were fixed

beyond the cross~

"For the joy set before HIS .."

for that is GOD'S will for our lives.

To live in the joy.

found in

JESUS.

I want to

ALWAYS

Walk

Like JESUS did.

But I can't & You can't~

ALWAYS

because

We need

JESUS

to

WALK WITH ALWAYS~

"Keep your eyes on JESUS, who both began and finished this race we’re in.

Study how HE did it. Because He never lost sight of where HE was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with GOD—

HE could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever.

And now HE'S there, in the place of honor, right alongside GOD.

When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility HE plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!"

(Hebrews 12:2-3)
