When Jesus is our king, we act different than others. Sure, we’ll make mistakes, but in those mistakes we take on humility and seek forgiveness.
God would rather have us holy than happy. He would rather have us set apart from the world than look like the world. He would rather we not gossip or talk down to those under us on the career totem pole; instead, He wants us to take on Christ’s heart and serve others. He wants us to deliver His blessings to others.
The impact of our behaviors are contagious. They are contagious with those we live with, work with, fellowship with, etc.
It starts in the home. Being consistent and intentional about having Christ as the center of our family is the foundational piece in our children’s lives. Be intentional in our teaching. Have planned time to worship as a family; and catch the teachable moments to share about Christ. We must capitalize on that.
“When a child of God, looks at the word of God, he sees the Son of God, and is transformed. ”
Luke 1:15 for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born. 16 He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
This post was based on today’s sermon at GCCC.
How do you share your love for Christ, your transformation, with others?
