Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
What a remarkable Scripture verse! What would happen if we truly believed it? Of course, we say we believe the Word of God, but have you ever really meditated on this week’s verse?
“As He is, so are we in this world.” How is Jesus? Is He sick? Is He broke? Is He in mental anguish? The answer to all of these questions is “Of course not!”
This verse tells us that we are exactly like Jesus. Moreover, it doesn’t say that we’ll be like Him when we get to Heaven; it says that we are like Him in this world. That means right now! Hallelujah! I don’t know about you, but that truth makes me want to jump and shout!
Just believe the Word of God and act as though you are what it says you are. If it says you are like Jesus, then you are!
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
