like Jesus:day 6

[Review this week’s verses. Do you look like Jesus? What needs to change?]

I wonder if my tendency is to live up to my preferences, or the christian culture’s ideals of what it means to be a Christian. It tends to be about being better than anyone else, rather than being more like Jesus. I get the sense that I need to continually refocus myself around Jesus. I need to embrace his dreams rather than my own. I need to identify when I fall back to the “easier” life of fitting into the molds “just doing the Christian thing.” I have to stop being satisfied with just getting by and really pursue Jesus and never be satisfied until I look like him in my attitude, character, and love.

Am I willing to make the investment to be like Jesus?
Is that really my desire?
What is holding me back?
What would happen if I stepped into this life?
