12 KEYS TO BECOMING LIKE JESUS - LOOKING AT JESUS WHO IS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH

********************************************************************************************************************************

1. SPIRITUAL BIRTH

The Lord has chosen us to be tranformed into the image of Jesus. Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit. Therefore the first key to a victorious life is to be born of the Spirit. The born again experience is the first step to a victorious life.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

*********************************

Romans 8:29

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

Matthew 1:20

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.

Luke 1:35

John 3:5

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’

2. SPIRITUAL POWER

Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit without measure which was the secret of his power. Jesus did not strive to live his life and fulfill his ministry with human strength. Therefore we must be filled with the Holy Spirit in order to such a victorious life and be a blessing in this world.

************************************

Matthew 3:16-17

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him.

And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."

John 3:36

For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.

Acts 10:38

how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

Luke 4;14,18,19

Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed,

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor."

Acts 1:8

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

3.SPIRITUAL MATURITY

Jesus experienced continous growth and increase in his life from his childhood. Therefore we must be constantly growing in our spiritual life in order to have a life of victory.Those remaining stagnant in walk with God cannot walk in victory. We must grow in grace in order to accomplish great things for God.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

************************************

Luke 2:40,52

And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

I Corinthians 13:11

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

1 Corinthians 15;9-10

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

4.SUPPLICATION

Jesus had a strong and powerful prayer life. His strength came from his intimate fellowship with God where he received all his guidance and empowerment. We need such a prayer life in order to live a victorious life. We must pray according to the pattern that the Lord has taught us. Our prayers can save our nation from the wrath of God and bring great blessings to our nation.
