To be like our Lord Jesus Christ.

Posted by andriantoangkadirjo85 on May 20, 2016

Shalom!! This time I want to share another Bible’s Truth that many christians do not know what is exactly they should do in this world as a believer. Without this, they just like a ship that is lost direction, get lost and destroyed.

We are a christian because God have chosen us. So, what next? God also want us to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, His Son. This is the truth that many christians do not realize it. To be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, His Son. This is the real goal/destination in our life as a christian during our life in this world. This is a life-time process, not an easy one, like running in a race that is set before us.

So, what is the image of Jesus Christ look like really? What does to be like our Lord Jesus Christs mean? Without getting understanding, it is impossible to be conformed or resembled our Lord Jesus Christ. So this is the image of Jesus Christ : Being in the form of God, He made Himself of no reputation and took upon Him the form of a servant and being found in the fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to God unto death, even the death of the cross. 

The next question : How can we become of no reputation and a servant We can ask the questions directly to Jesus Christ. This is another Truth! Just like a young, wealthy man that came to Jesus and asked Him : What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? All these things have I kept from my youth, what lack I yet? Jesus said to him to become of no reputation by selling all that he have and giving to the poor, and be a servant by following Him as His disciple. By doing these, the young, wealthy man will exactly conformed to the image of Jesus and have eternal life. But he refused them!!! The young, wealthy man refused to be conformed to the image of Jesus.

What about us now? Knowing the truth, may be we will ask to Jesus, what shall I do to be of no reputation and a servant, and when Jesus answered it, what will we do? Shall we deny it just like the young, wealthy man? Or we obey and do God’s will to be conformed to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ?

Last, by doing God’s will we certainly will enter His Kingdom as His sons, with our Lord Jesus Christ as elder brother. Amien.

REFLECTION :

As a christian, do we know exactly what to do in this life? Without this knowledge, we will be lost. Knowing the Bible’s Truth about it, make us can face this life easier, more certain, no afraid, no easily intimidated. The Bible’s Truth have make us free!!

Bible’s verses: (…..should be meditated day and night)

  1. Romans 8:29
  2. Philippians 2:6-8
  3. Matthew 19: 16-22

BE GRATEFUL IN THE DIFFICULT TIMES

Posted by andriantoangkadirjo85 on May 5, 2016

Hello everyone!! It is nice to be back again! How are you guys? Hope you’re all good and be blessed. Sorry, it’s been a very long time since my last posting and I’m never expected that I have more than 30 thousand visitors on my blog.

Well, there’s a changing in the topic of my future posting. From now on, I’m only posting about the truths according to the bible, God’s words. I’m not posting about beauty or experience or wisdom anymore.

Why? Because I myself believe the truths in the bible is extremely important. As a guidance for us to carry out our live so we are not lost in this world. Knowing the truths in the bible will make us a free person, we are not the slaves again of sins, fear, worry, greedy. We are free, peaceful man. Lord Jesus said, as long as you are continue in my words, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truths and the truths shall make you free.

This time I will share the truth about “Be grateful in the difficult times”.

As believers, people who believe in Jesus Christ, who called God as Father and who made commitment to be confirmed to the image of Jesus Christ, we will be processed unto a perfect man. All problems, troubles, difficulties which is called as affliction can be used by God in this process.

In this affliction, we should uncover which part of our life that God is being worked on such as : our temperament/easily get angry, our feeling which quickly get offended, or other sins. If we aware of this truth, that affliction is part of God’s plan to process us unto a perfect man, we should be thankful. So, we shouldn’t see affliction as a negative but more as a blessing.

Here are 3 characteristics of temptation that shows a believer is being processed by God :

  1. Common to man. The temptation is common, that most people ever suffered/ experienced. No such thing that happening to us that never happened to other people before. The bible said it is common to man!! Do not afraid!
  2. Able. We are able to endure cause it is no need a superpower, just an ordinary one, a power of usual man. Why? Yes, because our God is faithfull !! God will not let us to be tempted above that we as man, able to endure. God is faithfull.
  3. A way out. There’s always a way out, a way to escape, an end of the problem. Every problem/difficulties/troubles/affliction must have an end. Hallelujah!!

All these problems, difficulties, troubles that bring affliction to our life can be originate from our parents (such as poverty and illness), our own mistake (laziness, carelessness), other people (violence,accident) and situation in the world (war, earthquake)  and God can use all of these to process and for the good of us, that is to be a perfect man.

Just after being a perfect man, next, we will endure another affliction according to our own ministry to serve God or taking His Cross. But this one is light and in a moment and work for us a far more exceeding and eternal glory.

Hallelujah and praise the Lord. Now we have simple understanding the truth in the bible about problems, difficulties, troubles. They’re not merely negative but a blessing, cause God can use all to bring good to us and make us unto a perfect man. While, being a perfect man, God will give us ministry or taking His Cross, to another affliction. But this time will bring us an eternal glory. Amien.

Reflection :

  • If right now, as a believer, we have many problems, such as : illness, financial, job, family, etc …please do not afraid, frustrate, desperate. The truth of the bible has taught us and has made us free and certainly we can give thanks to our God.

Bible’s verses (please….meditate day and night) :

  1. 1 Corinthians 10:13
  2. Romans 8:28
  3. 2 Corinthians 4:17
