“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus” Phil 2:5
We all have been saved and given right to be called as a child of God Almighty by the grace of Lord Jesus Christ. From the day of salvation till today how much did our attitude and our character change to be more like Christ. Why are we not growing up? Let us carefully study, on how to grow.
Overcome Sin: Most of us fail to grow because we continue in sin. Taking sin lightly is deception from evil one. And some of us are still struggling to overcome wrong doings. Root cause of failure is because we try to live holy with our abilities. Lord whose grace is sufficient to give us salvation and helps us to lead a holy life. The word says “The Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect from the evil one” 2 Thess 3:3. So let us ask Lord to partner us in daily walk.
Obedience and Direction: Second step of growth, is to love God and fulfilling His purpose. The word says “May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love” 2 Thess 3:5 When we have sincere desire to love the Lord, and when we ask for the fulfillment of the desire. Lord will pour out a Spirit of deep love for our Lord in us, for the Lord loves us unconditionally. That love will lead us to fulfill His purposes.
Father Lord, thank you for forgiving me by the blood of Jesus Christ. Lord, strengthen me to walk in your ways. Guide my heart to love you. Amen.
