EXPRESSING HIS VERY CHARACTER

"He who has seen Me has seen the Father… Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own authority. But the Father who lives in Me does the works… On that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you."
(John 14:9b; 10; 20)

Jesus is the express image of the Father. That means He expresses the very character of God (Hebrews 1:3).

What the Father says and does, He says and does. When you have seen Jesus, you’ve seen the Father. 

Now Jesus lives in us through the Holy Spirit. God’s plan is to transform us into the image of Jesus (2 Corinthians 3:18). According to 1 John 2:6 we are supposed to live our lives as Jesus did. 

We are to obey His commands. 

We are to say what He says and do what He does.

Then people will see Him in us as they saw the Father in Him. 

As He is the express image of the Father, we are to be the express image of Him, expressing His very character and nature.

PRAY WITH ME: Holy Spirit, please help me live my life as Jesus did. Help me obey. Help me say what He says and do what He does so people can see what He is like through me. Thank you for being with me and helping me.
