Do we realize?

This morning as I read the Scriptures this verse really stuck out

JHN 5:19 ESV

So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.

It gave me such a clear picture of a small child mimicking his father, literally following in his footsteps watching everything his father does.

Parents(we) do not realize how much our children watch us. How much they mimick  our behavior. Do you wonder why your children have not dedicated themselves to Christ? What is your walk like? Do you wonder why your children do not pray? Do you pray?

Our children are a direct result of us. How we are, how we treat each others, and them. How we walk with  our Lord.. everything we do they watch, they learn.

Christ stated - he can do nothing on His own accord, but only what he SEES the FATHER do. He was taking all his cues, direction from His heavenly Father.

Did you know that we can have that VERY same relationship with Our Father? The Word clearly gives us direction on what He wants us to do, and how He wants us to live.  He sent His Son to be the living, breathing, walking example for us to follow.  So often I hear from people, it is just to hard to live " the Christian Life" but it comes down to, we can not do it in our own accord. We can't mix the world and Christ. It is like oil and water, they will never mix well,  one will settle on top of the other. The world will always seperate you from HIM.

I pray you are blessed by this insight. I been trying to type this out for 3 days, and of course have lost most of what I wanted to say. But the Word of our Lord bring  your heart alive and towards HIM.

Be blessed

  1. Amen... I completely understand. We biblically homeschool our children. Everything they are learning now, will be from us. It is most important to us to teach our children about God. Pray to God ALWAYS, and not just in time of need. Teaching our children about God and Family actually brings us all closer. Great Post.


I love comments.. I love to hear from you and know you have blessed me with your thoughts
