Becoming Christ Like

Becoming Christ like doesn't mean that we have to live in a bubble or a shell. It doesn't mean that we have to be a dull person. It doesn't mean that we lose our individuality. God created each person unique, so he doesn't want us to lose that. To be Christ like means to transform your character, not your personality. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. Meaning we need to be more like Christ.



Ephesians 4:22-24 says That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

To be Christ like is to throw away our old nasty habits and strive to be more pure. Sure we all have bad habits. We all slip up and say things we shouldn't say. None of us are perfect. We all sin daily. But we must try to live as Christ like as possible.

We shouldn't have to tell people that we are a Christian, they should be able to sense that by our actions. Non believers watch Christian's every move. We need to be a light to everyone even other Christians. If you continue to keep a sweet and patient spirit while you're going through times of hardship and suffering, that light will burn even brighter, catching the eyes and the curiosity of even more people.

As Christians we don't need to be hateful or rude. We need to be kind, lend a helping hand to those in need. We also should not be judgemental. God is the only one that can judge. 

Matthew 5:16 says Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

To be a Christian is to be like Christ. If you sit down and think about it, would Christ be acting like we do? That will really get you thinking.
