The title of the message is “If Jesus Was Writing a Book About You, What Would He Say?” The link to the message is below.
Proverbs 22:1 “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”
Do you have a good name? What we should want more than anything is to have a good name. It takes a lifetime to have a good name, but it only takes one second to tear down your name. Most people want great riches and favor silver and gold more than a good name. My heart’s desire is to have a good name. I want to let you know something: if you tell little white lies, do you have a good name? The answer is no.
Let’s get to the message. I want to take a look at what was written about some of the men in the Bible.
Numbers 12:3 “(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth).”
Moses was meek than anyone on the face of the earth. He was so humble. In order to lead the children of Israel, he had to be the meekest man on the face of the earth. Lord, please help me to be meek.
Isaiah 41:8 “But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.”
Wow, Abraham is God’s friend. Can the Lord say that about you? I would go to a retirement home once a week for Bible study and prayer, and this lady was the wife of a pastor who was already in heaven. One day, as I was leaving, she said something to me that really hit my heart. She said, “Brother Keith, when you are talking to Jesus, it sounds like Jesus is your best friend.” I went to my truck and started crying, and I told Jesus I want to always sound that way when I pray. I want to always be your friend. Can you imagine someone saying you are a friend of God? Wow, if someone can say that about you, I will tell you right now that you have lived a wonderful life. The best place to be on this earth is to be a friend of God. What if the enemy knew that you were a friend of God?
James 2:23 “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.”
Abraham was called the friend of God. Why is this? They spent so much time together that Abraham got to know God. Abraham walked with the Lord his whole life. Do you want to be a friend of God?
Daniel 9:23 “At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.”
Gabriel the Archangel said to Daniel, “for thou art greatly beloved. The meaning of this word is delight, desire, pleasant, goodly, precious. What a wonderful thing to say about someone. Daniel’s life was so pleasing to the Lord.
- King David
1 Samuel 13:14 “But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.”
King David was a man after God’s own heart. I so want to be a man after God’s own heart. What set David apart from the rest? When he sinned, he asked for forgiveness and forsook the sin.
- John the Baptist
Matthew 11:11 “Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”
Jesus said this about John the Baptist, “there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist.” Look at what Jesus said about Judas Iscariot.
Matthew 26:24 “The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.”
Jesus said about Judas Iscariot, “it had been good for that man if he had not been born. Wow, that is so sad. What would Jesus say about you right now? What would he say if he was writing about you? What will the preacher say at your funeral? Will he be able to say anything that is good about you?
Genesis 5:24 “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.”
Enoch was so close to the Lord that he took him home to be with him. Enoch walked with the Lord every day. What a sweet fellowship he had with the Lord. We can have the same fellowship with the Lord. When you are walking this close to the Lord, life is no longer about you. Your whole life becomes about Jesus. That is a wonderful place to be.
I have to mention the inner circle of Jesus (Peter, James, and John). I have to ask myself, if I was living back then and was one of the Apostles, would I be a part of the inner circle? Would you be a part of the inner circle?
Men of prayer
- Moses and Samuel
Jeremiah 15:1 “Then said the LORD unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth.”
You look at what the Lord said about Moses and Samuel, and all you can think about is that these two men were men of prayer. Are you a man or woman of prayer? Out of 2,000 prayer warriors, there might be 1 or 2 true prayer warriors. How is your prayer life? How is your ministry’s prayer life? How is your church members’ prayer life?
It was about 7 years ago that I said to the Lord that I want to become a man of prayer. It takes a lifetime to become a man of prayer. On the YouTube channel that I have, I have preached around 20 messages on prayer. The Lord was saying to Jeremiah that Moses and Samuel were true prayer warriors. Israel had passed the point of no return, and even if these two men prayed, fasted, and repented for Israel and Jerusalem, he would not hear them. That is so sad.
What would Jesus write if he was writing about you? What does he think about you right this minute? God is still writing your story; quit trying to steal the pen. I pray that this has helped you.
