“I Am” like You


Jesus Loves each and everyone of us

Hi Everybody!

 Todays meditation is from the book of proverbs.

 Proverbs 23:24 NKJV

“The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, And he who begets a wise child will delight in him.”

When I read this verse I thought about how Father God looks at us. Are we like GOD????? The father who delights in righteousness is happy when He is able to reproduce after His own kind.

The Word Begets means :-

verb (used with object), be·got or ( Archaic ) be·gat; be·got·ten or be·got; be·get·ting.

1.(especially of a male parent) to procreate or generate (offspring).
2. to cause; produce as an effect: a belief that power begets power.
That’s what the word “begets” means. When a father begets a child it means that he reproduces after his own kind. In this case, the proverb speaks of a Father who is delighted to reproduce a wise child. This child carries on in the same wisdom as the father onto the next generation to come.
 
Children imitate what their parents do as a reflection of the character of the parent. In the same way we are all supposed to be imitators of Christ our Lord. When we imitate the attitude of Christ, we become children that He begat and therefore have the right to say “I AM” like you Lord. “I am like you Mom & Dad” – It’s the same thing. God rejoices in His children that imitate the attitude of Christ-likeness because we are all Joint-heirs of Christ(Romans 8:17).
 
So today, ask yourself, Is your conduct imitating that of our Lord Jesus Christ or Not? If Not, who are you imitating ? Remember that we have two fathers in this world that we can follow, we can Follow The Holy One (Isaiah 29:23)or the Father of Lies (Satan) (John 8:44). Choose to be imitators of Christ so that as a Father of righteousness, He will greatly rejoice in his children that choose to walk in the paths of divine wisdom that comes from the reverential Fear of the Lord.
 
I have a song here today from Fred Hammond called Lord How I Love You. May it Minister to you today. God Bless you everybody!!!!

Ephesians 5:1
[ Walk in Love ] Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.

Romans 8:16-18 (NKJV)

16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

From Suffering to Glory

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 Proverbs 9:10
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

 
Isaiah 6:3
And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”
 
Isaiah 17:7
In that day a man will look to his Maker, And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
 
Isaiah 29:23
But when he sees his children, The work of My hands, in his midst, They will hallow My name, And hallow the Holy One of Jacob, And fear the God of Israel.
 
Isaiah 45:11
Thus says the LORD, The Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: “Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons; And concerning the work of My hands, you command Me.
 
 Isaiah 47:4
As for our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name, The Holy One of Israel.

  1. Nice post. You know, one of the the major things Christians fail to reproduce from their spiritual ancestry, God, is wisdom.

    Neverthrless, we have all fallen short of standards. Since the fall of man, our spiritual genes have been mutated and corrupted by sin. Creating some spiritual monsters who are wrecking this planet.

    Thanks for opening this discussion.
