Do you want to be new?

Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God-Truly righteous and holy. Ephesians 4: 23-24

We all ‘say’ we want to be more like Jesus. To be anointed with His kind of grace but do we really?

How many of us as humans would raise our hands and say, “Me Lord, make me more like you,” and actually mean it?

Not many. Because to be more like Christ we need to change from our old, sinful self into the new enlightened version that God has for us.

Sacrificing things to become closer to God is not an easy task and there are few who would take it up; but to put on the nature of Christ we need to follow his ways. Pray more, be kind to those who hate us, care for those in need, and throw a table or two once in awhile when none of the above are being effective.

But the greatest thing we can do to be more like Christ is love

One thought on “Do you want to be new?

  1. Love is painful. Love is sacrifice. We don’t think of it that way but it’s true.
    if making others happy makes you happy then you get what love is.
    Thanks for your insight
