Every Christian I know hopes to walk in Jesus’ footsteps. But walking in the steps of Jesus Christ is a mammoth task though not impossible. When you read and imagine how Jesus conducted himself during His time on earth, it seems anyone could dedicate their life to living like Jesus. Jesus said we would do what he did once he left and even more.
So what do you think is holding us back? Until the Holy Spirit transforms us into a new creation, we are going to continue to fall short because the Bible says:
So only the new you can fit into Jesus’ footsteps. If Apostle Paul did, you could do it too. Of course, you may never be able to perform miracles. But that is not a requirement to be in the company of Jesus Christ.
You have often heard it said, “God works in mysterious ways.” And you have wished to see a miracle all your life. But the truth is, you want a miracle that brings drama.
Of course, you would like to see the dumb talk, the blind see, and the lame walk because those miracles would get a lot of attention, drama, and astonishment. But the miracles happening around you and in your community every day get no attention.
For example, you are traveling on the highway, obeying all the traffic laws, and observing the rules of a good driver. Then, suddenly an erratic driver cut you off. But through the grace of God, somehow you managed to escape with no incident, and instead of thanking the Lord for the miracle, you started to curse at the other driver.
All you wanted was to get your hands on the stupid driver. You fail to see the miracle because there was no drama surrounding it.
The young man, whom a struggling widow helped out when he was a child, decided he would help pay her monthly bills when he learned she was struggling.
Those are some of God’s mysterious works that happen daily in our communities. But you’ll never hear about them because God’s works are not surrounded by drama.
