Christlikeness


Above you see 2 pairs of Chacos. One pair is mine and the other pair are Kalens. If you would have asked me 3 years ago to put these Chacos on I would have politely said, "NO WAY!"

... Here I am 3 years later wearing these. It's interesting how when you begin to love and trust someone, you start turning into that person! Kalen and I have been married almost a year and a half. As the time has passed and our relationship has gotten stronger and more intimate, I've begun to like the things he likes-- Like Chaco's, and many more things! 

This, in essence, is what happens in our relationship with Christ. As we grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, we start to think like Him and supernaturally become like Him! That's why the Word of God says,

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."
Romans 12:2

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
Psalm 1:2


This is why WE must make time for God and His Word everyday! We must continually meditate on God's Word or we will conform not into our Savior, but to our media and our world... which is NOT Christlike. We will conform to whatever we focus on most.  Praying that we will choose the greater joy of Jesus and not the fleeting pleasures of the world!
