Becoming Like Jesus



We can become like Jesus when we allow Him to . . .

1. Change our focus.

    Set our hearts on things above.

    Set our minds on things above, not on earthly things.


2. Change our disposition.

    Disposition: Your prevailing frame of mind.
    Your prevailing mental and emotional tendencies.
    Your prevailing inclinations.

    Old Self / Old Disposition

    Sexual Immorality
    Impurity
    Lust
    Evil Desires
    Greed
    Idolatry
    Anger
    Rage
    Malice
    Slander
    Filthy Language
    Lying

    New Self/ New Disposition

    Compassion
    Kindness

    For modern day stories of how God has transformed people, read What's Missing Inside You?
    Humility
    Gentleness
    Patience
    Forgiveness
    Love
    Unity
    Peace
    Gratitude
    Wisdom
    Encouragement

    The world's approach to personal change is more education.

    God's approach to personal change is a surrendered will.


3. Change our motivation

    Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.

    Spiritual actions and selfish motives don't mix.



We offer two short devotions based on Colossians.
Reflecting Christ's Likeness in Our Disposition

Christian Priorities: Focusing on Things Above.
