HOW TO LIVE!
Jesse M. Hendley
If you have your Bibles, I would like for you to
turn with me to Ephesians 5. This has been a
blessing to my heart as I have meditated upon it,
and I thought it would be a blessing to others. God
promises to bless His Word!
The theme is "HOW TO LIVE." How to LIVE!
Now, God has TOLD us how to live. He has laid it out
for us in detail. It is all there in the Bible. If
you want to know how to live, if you want light on
any particular subject, the Bible has the answer.
God wants us to have the most blessed, most happy
life possible in this present world and in the world
to come, and He lays it out in the Book.

Of course, THE FIRST THING is to RECEIVE THE LORD

can't LIVE the Christian life unless you're ALIVE. A
person can't live a life, or grow in life, unless
they are alive physically. We must be born of the
Spirit of God to have spiritual life. There cannot
be a successful life without being born of the
Spirit. I was just thinking what a shock it would be

Bible and spiritual things, to read that THIS is the
life that GOD SAYS will be a blessed life here and
I want to just outline the type of life that GOD
SAYS is the most blessed life in this present world
and will be for the world to come. How to live! God
Himself is telling us how.
The first thing He says is, "Live like Me." We are
to live like God. "Be ye therefore imitators of God,
as beloved children." God says, "Imitate Me."
There are people who are imitators, you know. They
can imitate other people---the voice, the way they
act, the mannerisms. People in the entertainment
world are mimics and they imitate others.
Now God says, "Imitate ME." The difference is this.
When it comes to God, we have to have the Very Life
of God ...
