BECOMING LIKE CHRIST
Clothe yourselves with that new and better self, which has been created to resemble God in the righteousness and holiness which come from the truth.
(Ephesians 4:24 Weymouth)
The greatest reward for obeying God is not what you get,
it’s what you become!
Even though you are born again and a new creature in Christ, you must decide to allow the Holy Spirit to tell you the truth. Why? Because the truth will set you free; then you can be all that God wants you to be. Wrong attitudes, compromise, sin, and disobedience will stop the flow of the life of God so the image of Christ is not working in you and cannot be fully formed in you.
Other people may have never known what your true personality was like because of all the things that have happened and all the trash piled on top of you. Let the Holy Spirit begin to work in your spirit, lead you into all truth, and show you who you are in Christ.
It’s time for change — I’m not talking about moving to another house. I’m talking about a move on the inside of you! Once you find out who you are in Christ and let Him be formed in you, every gift, talent, calling, and purpose of God will begin to take shape in your life.
Confession: I am who God says I am. I have what God says I have. I can do what God says I can do. Christ has redeemed me!
