What does it mean to be like Jesus? To have His character? We all want to be better people – more loving, more patient and kind, have more self-control. But how do we do this? How do we do this in a world where things seem to drive us in the wrong direction? How do we become more loving, peaceful and more when “The good I want to do, I don’t do?”. Many in our churches are living self-defeating lives and are wondering if this is what the Christian life is always going to be like.

 

The key to changing this is learning to apply what Jesus has already done for us. He not only modeled all these things but He also made the way for us to live like this because of the cross and resurrection. He has broken the power of sin over us and now we need to learn to apply these truths. To live by the Spirit. To choose. To actively apply what it means to be in Christ and then to choose to behave differently. Not in our own strength but in the power of the Spirit.  This is the time for declaration and appropriation of who we are in Christ and the conscious choice to live in this so that the fruit of the Spirit may grow in us. In Christ we have all we have – we need to learn to put this into practice. In Christ, we have all we need to renew our minds, re-pattern our emotions and retrain our bodies.
