Christlikeness


For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. (Romans 8:5)

  • It is difficult to give up things we have grown accustomed to.
     
  • But God may want us to.
     
  • We may be involved in an activity that has become all-encompassing.
     
  • We know it would be best to limit it.
     
  • We may have a habit or practice that we know misses the mark of pleasing God.
     
  • We realize that we need to let it go because we love God and want Him to be glorified through us.
     
  • When we find things that interfere with our relationship with the Lord, with His help we can stop.
     
  • God has given us the provision.
     
  • The Spirit has provided us the power.
     
  • Let us ask God to help us not to let anything block His glory from shining through.
     
  • God is perfect, but we are so far from perfect.
     
  • May the Lord chip away our imperfections through the work of His Holy Spirit.
     
  • May the Lord help us each day to grow more and more like Him.
     
  • May we draw closer to Christ each day.
     
  • May we grow in Christlikeness.
