Walking as Jesus Walked

I have been thinking about this. In my devotions today I John 2:6 , "whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked" .

I have been reading a book by Andrew Murry called, "With Christ in the School of Prayer." One of the things he says is this:

"And of all the traits of a life like Christ there is none higher and more glorious than conformity to Him in the work that now engages Him without ceasing in the Father's presence--His all-prevailing intercession. the more we abide in Him, and grow unto His likeness, will His priestly life work in us mightily, and our life become what His is, a life that ever pleads and prevails for men."

Hebrews 7:25 says, "Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them."

I am so thankful for His continuous intercession.....I need to do this too.

So very true. I always emphasize how important it is for us to abide. I know that He is always with us but we must purposefully seek Him. I can see a difference even in my writing when I don't seek Him or when I'm distracted.

Thank you for sharing this my friend.
