Christianity MUST Become More Christ Like

Breath of Faith—   If you are breathing in truth; you will exhale in truth… 2 Corinthians 4:13

“Our churches are too pretty to be a reflection of Jesus Christ!” Would we be willing to risk looking a lot less beautiful to the world and a lot more beautiful to Jesus Christ.  Galatians 6:1

I count my life worth nothing – God counts my life worth EVERYTHING – Abundantly – Acts 20:22-24

He has called us to live in him, not to live in fear.  You do not have to understand it… It’s not your place to understand it.  Just go on your faith and God already knows what your future has in store as we walk into other lands to tell of God’s Word… Are you living in the center of God’s will- compelled by the Spirit – Acts 1:1-13

All of these statements, Beth Moore made, or made something like them (she talks so fast sometimes) this is how I wrote them down.  In our Jesus the One and Only Bible Study.

I was so touched by this study today.

I seek daily to be more Christ like, however; I know I fail, every day, every minute, every second.

God however, is a God of love, and grace, and mercy.  I will never be Christ like, but in my will to be more like Christ, I can strive to be the best person I can be.  The best wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and most of all Christian that I can be.

To do that, though, I need to know that means, being 100%, just like him.  Not when I want, not if it pleases me, not if I feel like it. Every minute, Every hour, Every day.

“Our Churches are to pretty to be a reflection of Jesus Christ” What a very powerful statement…

Think about that one awhile…   Not the buildings, not the pews, nor the windows, or carpets, etc…

But our pretty little boxes that we put people into… We have all of our perfect people in those pretty pews… the doctor, the teacher, the perfect student, the perfect family, etc… You get the picture…

We as Christians need to seek out those that don’t fit into that perfect little box… those sinners that may not look so pretty in our churches and help them fit into GOD’S pictures of what beautiful really is.

THEN and only THEN have we fulfilled his ministry…. To go and teach…

and then, each of these statements can be said with the power behind the text…
